The white rose

Colours of sin work hard
To taint and stain my pure heart
It’s hard to stay white
When coloured roses unabashed bloom
Tempting me with all their might

Should I give in to
Temptation and adopt a hue
Or remain just white
And find my place in a wreath
Sinless, peaceful, nice and quiet.
