You and the roses!

photo by Ed Ross

You only see the red petals
But not the blood on the thorns
As the pain insinuates and settles,
I stay and take the bull by the horns.

Yes, I stay with problems longer
You get to see only the rosy facade
Everyday in the mirror I face her
Against the stream, I struggle and wade.
