Rare Rose

Dear Rare Rose,

Is the world heavy on your shoulders?

I’ll bear it for you

I’ll carry it all

Dear Rare Rose,

Do they fear your self-developed thorns?

Do they steal them from you?

Do you hide away from them?

Dear Rare Rose,

Your stem feels weak

Your petals feel wilted

Lately you seem pale and lost

Dear Rare Rose,

You don’t see this self-possessed rarity

But even in your dullest hour

No sane or irrational soul doubts

Your evergreen beauty

Dear Rare Rose,

Live your life outside your garden

There’s a world that deserves you in it

A world that will never understand you

-M.L. Wright
