The Beautiful Side of the Cactus

The Beautiful Side of the Cactus

There are few of several people who are just like the cactus. As we know the cactus is rare, precious and sore. There are also unique people who are special, valuable, and painful. How could a hurtful cactus be precious? When it is rare, it worth the value despite it hurts and might sting you.

Throughout my life, I met few people who were like this cactus. They were always thorny whenever I wanted to be close to them. They hurt me several times. I never understood what was the wrong with them until I saw the other side of their personality because I was watching their thorns only not the other side of their painful thorns. Cactus injure at the first time so that we stay away of it next time to not injure us more. Although those people hurt me several times, but they did that because they did not want to hurt me more because they care about me. As I am valuable to them, I realized how valuable they are. Those people are rare because they hide their feelings and the beauty of their personality just like the cactus. However, they show it occasionally just like when the rose of the cactus grow after the rain. After that, we realize how the beautiful side of their thorns is precious and rare.

I might not be a professional writer, but I sometimes feel to write. I feel there are a lot of meanings behind my words and some of my writing have a profound effect because I usually write about what is true based on my experience.
