"Some people have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can." -Mary Frances Berry

I stand here
With red petals
Strewn around my feet
Blowing softly with the wind.
He left me here
With this flower
I hold in my han.d
"He loves me not!"
The flower had decided
when I ripped the petals off
One by one.
Now I stand here
Without even a bud
Because beneath the love,
I'm left with just
A stem of thorns.
