The Rose - Poem by Chelsea DeVries

The rose
Blossoms from a small seed.
Becomes something everyone
Loves.
Then wilts away into something
Everyone hates.
Then
The rose
Dies leaving behind
A memory.

    Well said. The world worships youth and when that is gone despises that which once was beauty itself, throwing it away like refuse. Still, a precious few retain the memory. Thus, beauty must be more than just on the surface if one is to have anything considered of value in old age. (Report) Reply

    i love the analogy of the rose(i've wrote a couple myself)
    Plus my favorite fairytale is beauty and the beast
    (the really old version, not the corny disney version)
    It is a fantastic piece.
    Much love,
    Heart
