A Rose is a Rose III

Posted by Monterey John (Hollister, CA, United States) on 30 April 2007 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I borrowed this piece of Poetry from a very good photoblogger Suzanne of http://suzanne.shutterchance.com/

From a simple prayer
That began as a whisper in a quiet place
A dream can inspire the world
A voice echo far away
The wind can take our thoughts
From the wasteland where we walk
Into a pure land
As heroes proudly stand
Like a rose among thorns

From a simple act
That began in the corner of an unlit place
A vision embraces the world
A million candles blaze
We rise above ourselves
With a dignity somehow
Reach that Promised Land
As heroes proudly stand
Like a rose that grows
In spite of it all
A simple rose among thorns

In every lifetime we find a heart
That lights a spark in the eyes of the weary
Who can lead me to a greater love
Show there's good in us.
