What is a rose?

A rose, as common knowledge, is a symbol of romance or being romantic. But there is so much more than that when it came to roses. I like to use roses to symbolize who I am as an author, not just because of what it represents but also at what other things it can represent. Roses are, to me, more than just for romance. They are used for friendship, for mothers, daughters, for many other reasons. What is a rose? To me, it signifies a human connection between two people that is driven by love for one another. No matter the reasons you give a rose to another person, it is always because of the love you feel for that person, even love that may be temporary or love for humankind in general. I am all about love, and this is what I write. We need more love in the world and more roses.
