I once found a rose
That drew me to it's beauty
I knew I had to take it for my own
I yearned to possess it earnestly
Without hesitation I jumped in
I grabbed it with all I have
Wanting it truly with all my heart
Praying sincerely to own it wholly
I held on to it vigourously
So that no one can steal it from me
Tightening my grasp onto it
As if I could never want anything more
I didn't mind holding on to it
I wouldn't exchange it for anything in the world
And yet others kept telling me to let go
As they saw my hands bleeding badly
I saw it before it even bled this badly
I knew that things would turn for the worst
And yet my desire took over my reason
And wounded myself from the thorns it has
As I contemplated my own pain
I saw the pain I was causing this rose
She suffocated under my grasp
She was dying under my care
I knew what I have to do
And yet I held on to it tight
Thinking that it was mine
And yet my hands said otherwise
Now I'm stuck in a dilemma
Should I still hold on and both get hurt
Or do I let go and let it grow on its own?
Do I say goodbye and just give up on it?
No matter how much I love it
If I continue this, I'll continue bleeding
And she'll continue suffocating
How do I let her go?
Hey. It's been a while..
Hope you like this piece..
An analogy of a rose and love..
