Roses Amidst the Thorn by Simone C. Wilson is a collection of poems which traces a couple’s intimate, twenty year relationship—their young, uninhibited love, their mature spiritual love, the breakdown of their love and the acceptance of the changes in their love. The poems reflect the spiritual connection within a relationship, the breakdown of one’s love and finally acceptance that a love has changed.

Excerpt from Roses Amidst the Thorn:

We cannot let anyone or society
Dictate our essence in life.
We must be allowed
To love, fail, experience death and rebirths
Only then can we soar!

This book is a collection of poems that takes a look at a marriage that has reached the point of separation of the couple. It reflects the emotions and struggle of the person left behind to find some purpose or insight as to why the breakdown of the marriage occurred and record the emotionally impact that it can cause. The poems also reflect the spiritual journey that the author went through and to understand the purpose for this unexpected experience and how with renewed strength and direction she was able to move forward with her life.

This volume believes that people will go through similar phase within relationship. They experience common feelings which at the time they think that they are unique to themselves but in the reality they are part of the human condition. All people regardless of their sex, nationality or religion can identify with this situation. How they handle the situation maybe diverse but the emotions are universal.

The author hopes that through Roses Amidst the Thorn, she will be able to stimulate the reader in such a manner that they realize loving is universal. It is the most powerful force which governs the paths of our lives.
