The Golden Rose


We search and look for something rare,
We wish and want for what's not there.
That something with beauty, an item that's fair,
Touched by the sun and handled with care.

The Golden Rose.

A song sung with magnificence,
I did not know of such existence.
A flower worth more than money in abundance,
This some sort of plant made a huge difference.

The Golden Rose.

It seems as if it's the dragon's treasure,
Because of the rose, it's the beast's pleasure.
What are the honest, true measures?
Slaying the beast or retrieving the life's true treasure?

The Golden Rose.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem reminds me of choices made in life or we just search for things that aren't there.
Like when I said 'What are the honest, true measures? Slaying the beast or retrieving the life's true treasure? ' is a choice that has to be made. The other message about this is that we chase love, money, beauty, and fairness. Plus, if one thing happens in life, it makes a big difference. We even get lost in greed is what I'm trying to say also, we worry about ourselves instead of others who need us as well.
