Rose - Poem by Jacquelynn Bobbs

We are but roses
In this tree of thorns
We seek those who can tolerate the pain
That we create
They bloom in muddy pinks
In yellows, reds and whites
I'll soon bloom as well
Color unseen
No one else will know
I grow away from them
Near the void so i never be picked
As I bloom I encase myself with thorns
So I'll never be drawn towards a human
So I'll never be picked
They'll never replant me
I'll simply die
They'll never love me
I'm only a bud
Though blue
I'm wrapped in thorns
I'm to afraid to show
