My First Rose

My First Rose

My first rose,
Is when I finally chose, 

To open up my heart, and draw myself a new start.

Like the flowers that bloom, this couldn't come too soon, 

Wilted and forlorn, I was ready for the dawn.

Finishing this, my first drawing,

Felt like embracing a new morning.

When I was young,  

I found solace in my art,  

But I became filled with self disdain,

And couldn't handle the pain.  

On paper all I could see, 

Was weakness within me,

So to protect my heart,

I tore everything apart.

Now I'm healing my scars,

And dreaming of stars, 

I was ready for the end, 

But now it's my imagination that will ascend. 

It doesn't matter where I am, or if life doesn't go to plan, 

If I only close my eyes, In mystical worlds I can fly. 

With a pencil in hand, I'm in a world I understand, 

With every stroke of pure bliss, this paper I can kiss. 

Creating art, feels like erasing the past, 

Drawing something new, 

Makes a hopeful future feel true. 


The poem will be included; 

printed with a filigree border, to match the dark undertones in the story!
