fragile as a rose

All of us have different layers, different sides
kind of like being as fragile as a new rose
just blossoming out in the warm summer sun.

Our outer layer, outer most shell
is what others see if they pass us on the street
just as with a rose, it can be fragile
sometimes being judged unfairly, sometimes not.

Layer after layer, we all have different sides,
different things that make us who we are inside and out.
Just as with a rose, it has many different layers
sometimes soft, sometimes not.

So, if by chance you pass me on the city streets
don't judge me just by the outside looks
because sometimes its whats hidden beneath
the beauty and colors of a rose
that is most important in this ever changing world
than to constantly be judged or be treated unfair

for you see, not only are roses a fragile, delicate flower
but, every person you see or pass in your daily life
can be compared to a rose I think
we all have our layers, our different sides in life
but just as a rose blossoms, it also can be taken away.

Roses and people have many similarities
if you just take the time to stop and take a step back
maybe you will see that sometimes its not right
sometimes, you should look underneath all the hidden layers
before passing judgement too quick in life.

Just as a rose, we all only have one life
Just as a rose, we all shine in our own lives.
sometimes shorter than others, sometimes longer.
Just as a rose, if you stop and smell the roses
maybe it will become more clear
that sometimes you should look underneath
and maybe just maybe you will find something
you never knew could be there
something new, hidden, or something just as
amazing as a rose.

Thank you for the lovely poem.
I have always felt that there is more to me than the outside.
People just can't see it. No, I am not a "10" or a body beautiful on the outside. But, inside - I am just amazing!
That poem says just that.......
Thank you again.....
