Never Held a Rose

I never held a rose Neither handle its blossoms nor held its stem I never held a rose before or after Tormented Minds in this filthy or world All remnants of drop shadow and torn spoils Who are we to warn our fellow man a man who never held a rose Mostly comforting, confident and secure Is the man is the one who never held a rose After no before I came up to the door And they wouldn't let me in And why was it because I was not one of them On where they my true friends Will I don't know but listen here Neither handle this problem before Cuz I should have not opened the doors Beat the enemy at bay tormented mind filthy world What are we here for afters or befores It's the one who hasn't held the rose I never held a rose neither it's blossom's nor held its stem I never held a rose Before or after tormented mind filthy world all remnants of drop shadow and torn who are we to warn our fellow man A man who has never held a rose Written by James Edward Lee Sr March 12 2016 From anthology "Purpose" 2016©
