The Rose Amidst the Thorns

The Rose Amidst the Thorns

Eva Dominguez, Writing River Editor

Among the hideous, there lies beauty.

In the darkness, there is still hope,
though all seems lost.

A picture of silk,
beneath a frame of sandpaper.

Though it is hard to see,
the light is always there,

To guide,
To trust,
To join.

For that is the rose amidst the Thorns.
