Favorite Quote:
We accept the love we think we deserve

Every rose is pretty,
No denying it,
the scent is sweeter than sugar,
the soft petals will comfort anyone.
The look is of love.
But look beneath the rose,
painful thorns deface its beauty.
Every beautiful rose has its thorns.
Every person, even "perfect" people have those hurtful thorns.
Especially people who say hear encouragement, but don't accept it.

I was looking at my friends Valentines day rose, and then just kinda thought of this.
