#EdenLit - (01.2013)- Poetry Open Topic- Roses

Before you read this, I'll give you some background. I wrote this when I was in the 8th grade. I used to be really into writing poetry, because it was a great way for me to let things out and we did a lesson on poetry for a few weeks where I had a chance to work out the kinks in my style. This poem probably isn't the best that you've read, but it has a lot of meaning to me and I think that's what is important when it comes to writing, that it come from the heart. Anyway, while you read this, keep in mind...8th grade. lol


My advice to everyone,
From young to old and frail,
That love is not an easy thing
Its meaning may become stale
Love is a rose in a garden of weeds
Sometimes strangled by its surroundings
With different wants and needs
Its subjects smiling or frowning
The thorns become the hard times
The deeper the more they hurt
But the color keeps its beauty
And the smell brings bees to flirt
The vibrant beauty shines
For everyone to see
But eventually the petals darken
And the beauty starts to flee
The petals drop
The leaves will fall
And the love
Will soon die off

OMG we LOVE poetry around here! The more the merrier!
This is truly a deep and meaningful poem from such a young writer, makes me just want to hug her and assure her that while winter will come the flower will bloom again in the spring.
I like free form poetry that minds rhythm and flow. This is a good piece and I like it very much.

I'll post a bunch for of my work if you'd like. I love to hear what people think of my work. It's been so long since I've written anything though...years and years and I'm only 24 so yea, lol it's probably been since I was 17. Just curious, is every topic considered when giving out the gift card? Because I'd like to have the opportunity, but this is really my forte and I'd rather stick to it than write stories.
