I Rose… - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

I rose, I rose,
From the trampled soil
I rose, I rose,
From the dust and the dirt
I rose, I rose,
To become the cynosure of your eye
Alike me, many more shall rise and thrive
If given a small chance to dream and aspire.
Now friends, you might be just wondering
As to who I am
So let me to life's opportunities raise a toast
And tell you, I am rose, the flower rose.

    With chances to aspire and dream, one can rise and thrive even from the dust and dirt like a lotus or a rose! You have cast the rose not in its traditional mould but in a new frame, as old wine put in a new bottle! A poem with a unique stream of thought! (Report) Reply

    The theme of the Rose might be very old. But as the most celebrated flower in the world is the Rose, you have rightly paid yet another a tribute to that sweet flower. Good rendering adds to the charm of your Rose sir. (Report) Reply
