A Rose

A lovely rose with petals soft
A scent so sweet and light
So beautiful a flower
With colors shining bright.
But something not so savory
About the fragrant rose -
The thorns, so sharp upon the stem,
That sharpen as it grows.
Yet still lovely is the flower
Despite the thorns that prick
Just as life and love are sweet
They too have thorns that stick.
But do not fear to live or love,
Life's not exempt from pain -
So pick a rose, you may get hurt,
But you will also gain!

This poem, from what i've read of your work is one of my favorites. Although it isn't as deep as some of your other poems, it's message was elegantly conveyed and beautiful. The words just flow and the message is one that anyone who reads it will understand and appreciate throuoghly. Bravo.
