Life Cycle Is Like A Rose

It starts out as a seed

Craving water and sun.

The roots seek to find rich soil

And the rosebud wants to exhibit it beauty.

With each new bloom

Followed by a thorn or too.

As the wind blows and the rain descends

The petals begin to fall.

The rose reaches and stretches for energy,

Hopeful that the day ahead will bring

More potency.

New buds appear

Filled with splendor.

The mature rose

Greets each bud,

Gives them a wave,

And then,

Becomes exhausted.

Anxious to shed its petals,

And return to the soil it once came from.
