A lovely rose with petals soft
A scent so sweet and light
So beautiful a flower
With colors shining bright.
But something not so savory
About the fragrant rose-
The thorns, so sharp upon the stem,
That sharpen as it grows.
Yet still lovely is the flower
Despite the thorns that prick
Just as life and love are sweet
They too have thorns that stick.
But do not fear to live or love,
Life's not exempt from pain-
So pick a rose, you may get hurt,
But you will also gain!

But with autumn leaf she perish'd, long time ago..."

Thanks for the quick reply Justbleu! I was thinking of something I had said earlier, that life and love are like roses, they also hurt, just like the thorns of a rose can prick. This is how it came out in poetry. I'm glad you like it.

Hi !! I'm about to head out to eat but wanted to drop by a message:

You write as well as any bontantist! (sp?)
But I liked the poem because it spoke of why risks are important.
