The Lily and The Rose

"Every rose has its thorns," many people say.
And if one is pricked, blood is what they pay.
Within the garden of God's creation a red rose blooms.
Blossoming with beauty and with thorns it dooms.
As this rose grows continuously over time.
It commits its own sins and creates its own crime.
But God, being a great Father, urges her to grow.
To let go of such sins, so she won't experience sorrow.
The rose being so young, thinks she knows best.
She continues on with her habits, just like the rest.
God bestows upon her one special little lesson.
One in which will need to be handled with one last confession.
The rose, though she is young, is blessed with a child.
What is seen as an accident, was meant to be all the while.
The rose's way of heart changes and begins to fully bloom.
The responsibility of motherhood, she must now assume.
But this child is not what she expects, not a rose at all.
In fact she's even more special, a lily ever so small.
Just as Jesus Christ is God's Lily of the Valley.
The Lily is the Rose's most perfect melody.
The rose watches each day as her Lily grows from its seed.
