My debut novel was just released. I am Roze. I have been writing seriously since 2004. To date, I have written 3 fiction novels which I regard as my best work. And I have also created two autobiographical novels and two mosaic type novels which are collections of short stories, articles, essays, poetry, and vignettes.
For eight years they called me a loser. Now they call me an author. Becoming an author is the best thing for a writer's soul. To imagine that my work is going to receive an audience is something I never dared wish for. It was better not to think about the future. Like with a prison sentence.
Time brings roses
Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than a rose.
Rose of all Roses, Rose of all the World!
But he that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.
The Rainbow comes and goes,
And lovely is the Rose.
Treaties are like roses and young girls--they last while they last.
-Charles de Gaulle
It's a rare man that understands the value of a perfect rose.
-Mary Alice Young
Rose! Thou art the sweetest flower that ever drank the amber shower:
Even the Gods, who walk the sky, are amourous of thy scented sigh.
We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
With thee, my love, hell itself were heaven.
With thee a prison would be a rose-garden.
With thee hell would be a mansion of delight,
Without thee lilies and roses would be as flames of fire!
Truths and roses have thorns about them.
-Henry David Thoreau
Every rose has it's thorn.
Say it with dead flowers in my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave
No, I won't forget to put roses on your grave
-The Rolling Stones
My baby knows how it rock and rolls
Bless the ash grey bones of the blood red rose
You were born to be my gallows
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
Hell was so cold
All the vases are so broken
And the roses tear our hands open
Mother Marry miscarried
But we pray just like insects
And the world is so ugly now
