Roses are vastly overrated; strive to be a dandelion.
They hold the key to childhood dreams
and secrets of a simpler time.
They grow in the most unlikely places
in the most uncertain circumstances.
The world begs you, “Be delicate, your thorns will save you”.
Thorns are but walls for self-preservation,
and the world may try to weed out your ambition
for daring to be anything other than a rose, but . . .
be a dandelion and thrive.
