More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

Prickly rose bush

With soft scarlet buds

Sits amongst the leaves

I like how this poem shows two sides of one thing; how something so prickly and sharp can have soft, smooth petals as well. It kinda shows the different sides of humanity itself... This poem is very deep, despite it being short. Yay Liv! :)
