A poem

"I asked the Lord
for a bunch of fresh flowers,
but instead He gave me an ugly cactus
with many thorns.
I asked the Lord
for some beautiful butterflies,
but instead He gave me
many ugly and dreadful worms.
I was threatened.
I was disappointed.
I mourned.
But after many days,
suddenly,
I saw the cactus bloom
with many beautiful flowers,
and those worms became
beautiful butterflies,
flying in the wind.
God's way is the best way."
Chung-Ming Kao
