A blooming rose is made more beautiful by its thorns. It is a contradiction of joy and sorrow.
I am the red rose plucked from a stem,
I am pierced with ironic thorns,
I am pierced with thorns,
I am pierced,
An idiot holds his bauble for a god
His Folly brings sorrow,
Free him now,
If sin then comes back again,
It is a dangerous thing,
Kill it quickly.
Drive a stake through its heart,
Burn it with a gasoline fire,
Destroy it totally
Trouble lives in the heartbeat of a fool,
His dance mix drumz redrum,
Murda Murda Jesus,
Satan the Prince of Darkness,
Jesus the light of the world,
Jesus is the light,

|Thanks, Regis. I sure did make those typos. Lol. Gosh, I was trying to be so careful, even though I knew the correct usage. Corrected twice. Thank you for pointing that out. The review process is ITS own reward. That is what IT'S all about. ;)|

|I agree that a red rose is a very powerful symbol and your verses give the reader pause for reflection, Rockie. In both your introduction and in the poem, you mean to write "its" (the possessive) as opposed to "it's" which of course means, "it is." I often make typos and appreciate when others point them out so I can correct them and they do not detract from the message. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace,

Be always safe,
