I walk naked among the thorns of life
waiting to breathe in a sweetened spice 

Scratched and bruised I overcame,
and remained patient just the same.

A wary glimpse, and I remember,
The moment felt in mid September

The white flecked red rose so purely born
cannot beguile or more adorn
its symmetry. 

Ah sweet smell, my sense allows
a perfumed mist to thus arouse 

a quick moment, an abductee 
of jealous fading reverie.
I wonder if, do you suppose,
That life is like the white flecked rose?
