How very true. We all can relate to wishing to be older, especially if we have older siblings. And how many of us wish to be young again! This was a very creative and cute way of revealing this truth.

A well-crafted and well-thought-through piece. Good metering and very good message, without falling back on slanting verse.
Well done.
Not to mention that when the bud's time has come to fully bloom, the other rose will have been spent. Great take on the topic!

Very creative approach to the topic. I also admire how you stuck to the theme - as it might have been easy to 'branch' out... ;-)

What a creative take on the topic. Very nice poem with a meaningful message. Well done!
Wow this is beyond brilliant. The poems are really grabbing my heart this week. I thought of this lesson when I heard the topic, about how we spend our lives wishing it away. I could never had delivered the message as beautifully and powerfully as this beautiful poem did.
Super creative. Love the personification of the roses. Lovely meter and rhyme as well. Thumbs up.
