Roses are Red / Violets are.........?

Roses are red Violets are blue Family secrets told Through your hearts spew A white wild orchid Bruised and stained with brown, Its virgin petals touched…. Emerging blooms will frown Mama lily beat purple, Her seedlings green; Siblings often wonder - Why is he so mean? As the wind carries seedlings Away from garden’s home; Lily’s tears water contused soil Her heart becomes eroded loam Roses are red Violets are blue Wounded whispers weep Longing affirmation from you ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ *few thoughts on domestic violence*

    Compelling...profound lines in this great and meaningful poem. Nice use of personification ...and the "colors" to set forth the message. Ruben.

    Your heart is in the right place, my friend, our voice may only be a drop in the bucket, but we will soldier on until light has come. Keep up the good work.

    This is beautifully written, Abe, and I hope those who need to read these words see your poem. It is always sad to think of the impact domestic violence has on spouses and children. You seem like a very gentle, loving soul whose heart is filled with compassion. Very spiritual! Much love and holiday blessings are headed your way, Carolyn
