A Rose of Thorns
By: Nicole Khrimian
A Rose of Thorns
Beautiful in its imitation
Intimidating in its appeal
A Rose of thorns has many admirers
Its uniqueness alluring, the danger exciting
But when close, the thorns are exposed
All the sharp edges and the ugly truth
The Rose of Thorns scares it victims away
Because a Rose of Thorns proves to be nothing
more than a mirror.
