'A Lonely Rose' Poem by Bernard Snyder

'A Lonely Rose'

Rating: 3.4


Something must've happened over time
no one seem to ever ask for me,
maybe I've lost my significance
or the world's going through a catastrophe,
maybe people don't love anymore
which would make me totally worthless
I may as well become extinct
for I have no other means or purpose,
no one says 'I love you' as I do
or put hearts together just for the hell of it,
but if I no longer have the same affect
what I once stood for is now irrelevant,
I just wanted to make a difference
and keep a smile upon a face
believe that I meant a lot more
than just another flower in a vase.

Very good poem. Good to write as the flower in the first person. I like that a lot. I think 'for me' and 'catastrophe' forms a great and original 'rhyme' The message is very clear and I like it a lot. A very important bit of wisdom lies in these very melodious lines.
