Rose’s Qualifications

At first

Chosen due to

Certain characteristics

.

Whipped around

A pure rose

Spinning through time

Loses many of its petals

To the sandy wind

.

The others

Stuck to the stalk

Still show hints of the original bloom

Begin to fade

Sliding through

The dirtying day

Landing on a decision

.

After all this time

That once “pure” rose

Fell into a different state of being

It was no longer what it was chosen for

It was changed

By the withering time

A different flower now stood

In the place

Only a rose could fill

And was so cast out

Of the broken hourglass
