I Am Red

I am a flaming rose

untamed. My heart blossoms,

flowering with love. It’s

soft yet exquisitely

thorny. Amorous it

may be in its spirit

.

and perhaps beauty

in kind, but it’s not

created with weak

crimson petals. Not

a flimsy female.

.

Perennial

it’s strength sturdy,

in a trailing

army of thorns

.

that prickle

if given

reason to.

.

I am

a red

.

rose.
