Rose

Rose and her challenges

The rose bud

The soft petals

Clad between the sepals

Oblivious to daily dismals

Drops of water dribbled

Gliding softly off the sepals

Not a single drop

Reaching the smooth petals.

Sweet Little Rose

She was protected likewise by her beloved parents

Shielded was she of difficulties

Not a single hardship did she encounter

They were deviated vehemently

By this armour called Parents!

The rose bud had bloomed

Into a beautiful flower

 

The sepals had curled downwards

All the same supporting the rose.

The rains came again

How the droplets

Landed ruthlessly on the petals!

Poor rose flower was drenched!

 

Little Rose blossomed Into a lovely maiden

Her parents were bent with age

Yet upholded their Rose.

Challenges arose again

How they bore down Upon Sweet Rose

Poor Rose was burdened!

Thank you for the warm welcome and thanks for sparing a read. Yes for me this is my way of describing the transition of a girl when she gets married and she no longer has the support of her parents like before. My story and every other Rose too. And hey it's october the Pink month!
