I am a gentle rose

Love Conquers All

I am a gentle rose
Yet so strong and bold
Fadeless under adversity
Using it to grow
Though I am cast down
I shall not wither away
For my heart beats loud
Against the torrent waves
My house stands firm
Against the winds of change
Cast down, but not utterly
I shall withstand the test
Break me and I will shine
My light shall shine forth
It peeks through the clouds
Though I cry many tears
My heart battered and bruised
Yet it beats so lovely
At that perfect tune
And I shall dance until I fly
And soon...once again...
I will soar on eagles wings
My arms shall release
The breath in me
I speak, live, and breathe
I am Love

Hello Tonya,
Oh this is eloquently sings of the journey metamorphoses. I can so relate to every phase and feel my wings lifting. I would love it if you linked up. I'm happy to fly next to another poet-artist peace bringer.

and Tonya, how beautiful.

as your love unleashes,
it forms a halo.
within that halo,
shall blossom grace.
Within the grace
shall grow forth,
Blossoms create fragrance,
and fragrance permiate the air,
and you will breath in love,
grace forever..
You are Love.......

hugs, Darlene.. xo
For you.. :-)
