Stickers and Thorns

Stickers and thorns
You were warned
Stay out of the thicket
They're full of pickers

Blackberries are sweet
Hard to resist
Vines have sharp barbs
They can do harm

Life is like this
But we forget
Sometimes its beauty
Has double duty

What might seem nice
Is camouflaged
Causes us grief
When we seek relief
