    I'm that rose that sits under the apple tree taking my time to blossom.
    I know that you maybe wondering how is that rose growing with no sun or no water.
    I'm a different kind of rose and it takes more than that to make me grow.
    See sitting under the apple tree tall and strong
    I have a friend to help me alone.
    Rainy days and stormy night
    sitting under the apple tree brings me light
    no one can figure out why and how I grow so strong
    with trials and tribulation always tagging alone
    you would think by now this rose would die
    to you my petals are very weak and fragile
    but between the rose and the apple tree
    I am just as strong and tall as I want to be
    now here's another thing you may think upon
    why is this rose under this apple tree
    because this apple tree give me love and strength to carry on
    this apple tree is my back bone, this apple tree will never leave me alone

    What this piece makes me think of is how sometimes we can thrive regardless of the odds, if given enough nurturing. Creative write.
