When I wrote this theme combination, I thought about many factors. My main inspiration, however came when I heard "The Rose that Grew from Concrete" by Tupac Shakur and then read the poem.
I did not concentrate on damaged petals, because I see a rose as something with timeless beauty inside and outside.
..."For leaving one breathless in its beauty and in tears"
(Gonzalez,June 2017). A rose never gets old. You are never too young or too old to love the ravishing beauty of a rose. When in doubt just buy your own with this book.
