Taken for Granted. Poem

i question whether you are taking me for granted. i know a rose loses her brilliance and fragrance over time and then she’s discarded like all the rest. is this you who doesn’t appreciate the strength in stems and roots.

please tell me i’m wrong. i want to believe wholeheartedly that you are not like all the rest. ’cause one thing know is how deep my roots grow and they aren’t for the faint of heart…
