A Rose Blooms

A rose blooms in an immaculately trimmed yard.

A rose blooms in the yard of an abandoned house.

A rose blooms in the wild on the side of the road.

A rose blooms when trained on a trellis.

The rose blooms not for another.

The rose blooms because it is a rose.

It shows its beauty through rusted chain link;

Just the same as freshly painted white picket.

A rose blooms alone in an empty lot;

Just the same as in a green, luscious yard.

It blooms because it cannot help but do so;

It is a rose and, therefore, it blooms.
