A Rose

One single rose

Waiting for someone to see its beauty

Waiting for someone to see past all the thorns and imperfections

But no one does

No one can look past its thorns or imperfections

So the rose wilts alone

Dies in the cold

But does not die forever

For it will return

just not now

you are not alone. there are many roses by that same name. we are better than the others, stronger than the others, and more wise that those weeds could ever be

I like the fact that it is a big metaphor. I like the simplicity of it too. Good job.
