The Rose
?Some say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower, and you its only seed.
It's the heart, afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance.
It's the dream, afraid of waking, that never takes a chance.
It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give.
And the soul, afraid of dyin', that never learns to live.
When the night has been too lonely, and the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows,
lies the seed that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes The Rose...? By Amanda McBroom

True Love is a Rose
I was thinking back about love, and I thought of a song called The Rose, by Amanda McBroom. This song compares love to a flower, to be specific, a rose. I, also, look at love like a rose. The rose that many see is just the flower, the pretty part. Love is beautiful, it is something that people desire and long for, as on a first date, you long to receive that flower or token of affection. Many people give away a single rose, or even a dozen, to the one they love. The rose has thorns as well, as many do not like to remember. The time you remember such a beautiful flower, a rose has thorns though, is when it pricks you. Every relationship has its thorns. A fight can be the thorn, or even a death. When things seem to go wrong, I need to remember and look back that the rose has three parts, the beautiful flower, the thorns, and yes, the stem. The stem of a relationship is how long it lasts. When you first get a rose from the store, it may be long, but then it gets trimmed and shortened. With every relationship, things can go wrong, it can be shortened, or it can even bloom into a beautiful flower. Every relationship needs the hard times to build on and grow. A person might be so infatuated or ?in love? that they may say they will die because they hate the person that they love. This is like a person who says, buy me a rose, then once they receive the rose, and they throw it on the ground and smash it. The rose that is given you is something that is treasured; it is a beautiful thing that one might save. Love is something that many people cling to so closely, but a rose is something that means something to you. When a person that you love gives you a flower or anything you want to keep it, and show it off. The rose is beautiful, and people try to show off their love, and then people see true intentions, a ?look what I have? mentality. This is something that when the rose withers, people do not see the rose so beautiful, they see it as something they need to discard. When love is not preserved or kept safe, it will one day wither and die.
