Even from the blackest rose...

Even from the blackest rose...

A Poem by Maria Retz

Even from the blackest rose, white petals shall fall,

when it understands the meaning of forgiveness.

Even from the coldest ice, warm waves will shine,

when it understands the meaning of unconditional love.

The darkest forest is able to give birth to the brightest tree,

if it is allowed to grow through the experience of its true self.

Wow this was so amazing. I didn't see any mistake. I loved the connection between nature and the human emotions.

I quite enjoyed this. Though short and lacking rhyme, it flowed well and carries with it a meaningful message. I did not find any errors, and I never would have guessed English isn't your native language.
Good Write.
