Razors and Roses

life turns full circle upon me
for all the good and bad
that I’ve done

I’m showered with razors
or roses corresponding
to deeds and words done

when I meet someone known
they react as I’ve treated them
roses or razors once again

aware of how I treat others
taking full responsibility
for every decision and action

or inaction
for those razors and roses
will shred or bless me

result from all I have done
or not done
will turn full circle upon me



  1. So true! This is one of your bestest poems and poem-themes, Kate! Thank you for writing it and sharing it!

    Roses for you!!!

  2. I really like this!
    Treat people as you’d wish to be treated yourself
    Don’t do to others what you don’t want done…
    Live, love, laugh
    Love, light and glitter
