Blue Roses

Blue Roses

a Poem by Raquel Swann


You won’t find such beauty 

in any ordinary garden. 

Only those who have 

walked tirelessly 

in stone shoes 

lined with thorns,

who have found their way

across the divide,

looking for a place

to find acceptance,

in themselves,

and those around them.

Blue roses may not exist

within the confines of nature itself,

yet for those brave, courageous souls

who sought out visibility

in a harsh world

will understand

the beauty of such a glorious,

rare gift.

The Blue Rose,

created with love,

forged in hope,

watered with self awareness,

so that one day

you will find one

in every garden

growing amongst the others,

who finally comprehend

how lovely and elegant

it truly is.
