You, Rose

I wrote this poem because there are a lot of people out there who do not believe they are beautiful. Really It is because you believe everyone else has something you don't, when really you have something better, you are a rose.

You, rose

You, Jealous of the dandelion
How her petals fly freely on the wind
without wings
How the sunshine's children come to
Pick her and play

You, envious of the lily
How her stem has no thorns, and her flower
stains pure
How her name is the rainbow, and her beauty
Oh, her beauty

You, you resent the daisy
How her simple is beauty, and her center
The sun
How she dances in the sunlight
and soaks in the rain

You, you cry at the tulip
How God gave her vast colours, and left you
With one
How her petals they open
And soak in the sun

You,
Do you not know who you are?
Rose
Like no other flower
Your passion is real, rose
Your spirit is free

And yet
You cannot see what we see
You do not fathom
The extent of your beauty
You, rose

  2. This was a beautiful poem, and it's very relatable these days. I wish more people could see this, especially those struggling with themselves and wishing that they could be someone else. It made me smile :).
