When in doubt... Blame it on your siblings
when life gives you skittles throw them at random people and yell FEEL THE RAINBOW

A Rose

One single rose

Waiting for someone to see its beauty

Waiting for someone to see past all the thorns and imperfections

But no one does

No one can look past its thorns or imperfections

So the rose wilts alone

Dies in the cold

But does not die forever

For it will return

just not now

I like the fact that it is a big metaphor. I like the simplicity of it too. Good job.
