    Like the use of the WS quote (from the Sonnets, maybe) , not too sure anyother is correct, any other is probably
    correct, all in all not a bad write. (Report) Reply

    wonderful poetic selfie a portrait of acceptance in your beautiful poem...dandelions are food for wildlife and can be made into a wine or a salad and are healthy..roses are beautiful and fragrant and can be used in a bath, candles and incense as well as perfumes..no matter what it is everything on this earth has its own purpose and self-worth..

    Beautiful flow of words. A very meaningful write. All the qualities of beautiful rose we have within us. Yet, we fail to recognise ourselves and it is the hardest emotion yet to be accomplished by many. Loved reading it. Thanks for sharing with us.
    Congrats....A very well deserved poem for the day! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Self love is difficult to achieve these days when the media would have us believe that only perfection is acceptable.
    Very good write with a great message. (Report) Reply
