A rose is a lot like life.

It's beautiful, but it can cause pain.

You can experience the beauty, but one wrong move and you've pricked yourself.

You feel the pain.

You feel as though it will not fade.

But it will fade.

The pain leaves.

And you can experience the beauty again.

But the pain will leave a scar.

And that scar will never leave.

It can be reopened.

But it will heal faster.

You will always remember the pain.

But the beauty helps to take your mind off it.

We should live life as though it is a rose.

That way, we know that the pain will fade and the beauty will push to the surface.
