A SEA OF RED

 by a young man in juvenile detention, age 16

Life’s like a bundle of roses.
Some blossom into a beautiful sea of red
grasping every drop of water
through their complex roots
while some become malnourished,
their roots faltering in the soil
until its red shines no more.

The beauty of it all...
Each seed can flourish into excellence
until life is beautiful once more.

Dedicated to everyone struggling to succeed
