Once a Rose, Always a Rose
Never do the petals burst into flames.
Never is it the color of violets.
Never does it grow strong in the dead of winter.
It continues to stay as it was born to be.
There is constriction on how it can change.
Only when humans meddle in natural affairs does it become different.
Only when scientists play God and force the Rose to turn blue does it do so.
Only when the Rose is secluded in a green house does it grow in the dead of winter.
Only when we as humans change, the Rose can remain the same.
