The Days Before Yesterday



In the dreary cold,

When nothing bore fruit

A single rose,

All by itself grew

'It wouldnt live', they said

'In the dull winters

that were so cold'.

But the little bud grew,

On and on. And

The petals turned

Velvety and strong.

And before they knew it,

It was a full blown rose.

That even on it's own

Had beared the harsh cold.




-Momina.

  1. I don't know for sure if a rose could grow like that, but a person certainly can. You can grow up alone in the cold and the dark, but still come through okay.

  2. I love it, it's beautiful. I suppose the ultimate trait to need for a fulfilling life is what it took that rose to grow when nobody else believe in it.

    1. I am glad that I have somehow managed to pen down to your story, and to know someone who is that flower.
