Roses are so pretty, so red, so full.
You give them to show love and beauty.
They are also used in wedding bouquets and centerpieces.
But then, there is the dark side of roses.
Yes, roses are beautiful, but they can hurt people.
They have thorns that pierce your skin,
Make you bleed.
They are dyed black and used in funerals,
Meant for sorrow and sadness.
Life can be pretty, so beautiful, so full.
You give love and beauty every day.
You get married and have children.
But then, there is the darkness of life.
People can be hurt. People can hurt people.
They can make you bleed tears.
People can pass on and you go to ceremonies.
The good thing about roses and life…they start new.
