She’s a scared rose

And only God knows

The wheres and the whys

Of the tears she’s cried

What does she gain?

Inflicting her own pain

I can’t even guess

Why her thoughts are a mess

Her battles inside

To understand I’ve tried

I don’t think I can

But please never again

Don’t hurt my flower

Only you have the power

Cause only God knows

Why you’d scare a rose
