My Son, the Rose
Age Group: Adult
My son is like a rose
growing among a field of thistles.
If he gives in,
a family of thorns will kill him
before he has a chance to bloom.
But if he is strong enough,
he will rise up to be
the most beautiful flower there is.
Either way, the thistles,
out of jealousy, hate, and fear,
will try to choke his roots.
They will jab their thorns
into his leaves, stem, and petals.
He will inevitably be scarred
by the attacks of the field,
by the ravages of winter and rain.
he will be tried in ways of pain.
But my son is stronger than that.
Somehow he will bloom,
and grow into a stunning rose bush,
one so great
that no thorn will scar him again.
