a rose grows thorns for a reason


a rose grows thorns for a reason.

the most delicate flower

needs the greatest protection.

the responsibility of caring

for something so sentimental

often outweights any allure of the harvest. 

many can admire the beauty,

few can withstand the pain to hold on,

not a soul can keep one alive

by neglecting to give it light.

just as a florist cutting stems

early valentine's day morning,

the softest hearts are always

the first to be broken.
