((( Solitare Rose))) - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

A Solitary Rose 'tis growing...
In a Garden filled to the full with weeds...
With velvet soft petals of 'deep' red...
Today, that red Rose simply bleeds;

'Tis not the thorns of her stems...
Nor the lack of mother nurture nor care...
Its more the torments O' time...eons...
That bleeds out the Rose in despair;

For their 'tis n'er a good outcome...!
For people who practice to do deliberate wrong...! !
Only hope for the flowers that give joy to the Earth...!
For 'tis to this Earthly sod that they truly belong;

    A solitary rose that stands out just like a thistle amidst the
    thorns. Even a thing of beauty may withstand the test of time.
    The roots grows very deep into the earth where the Sun can't
    reach and burn it up. An inspiring write.
