[Poetry] A Rose’s Sting

Through the petals
And on the stem
Be careful of the thorns,
Which hide just underneath
The surface level
Must be patient however
For a gem hides in the mayhem
And the sting you must endeavor.
At times you may mourn
But fight on, dear warrior
For something wonderful lies
Just further beneath
Of glory/ a prize!
