“9 and the Rose” (back cover poem)

A Rose will appear, at the end of the line
Once you have traveled, from eight on to 9

If you can’t help but focus, on solely the ending
You’ll miss the next chapter & all it has pending

You reach for the Rose, needing something to hold
Unaccepting you can’t keep, a beauty so bold

The Rose wants to be free, it is not to be grabbed
As soon as you squeeze, by its thorns you are stabbed

Understand that the Rose, is for all, but for none
Or spend your life falling, from 9 back to one
