Bottom of the box

A bed of thorns, insects impaled
Stretching for miles on end
Yet in the centre
A single rose

War and death, fighting on
Destruction surrounded by pain
Yet in the centre
A single kiss

An impossible storm, rain and wind
Thunder, lightning strikes
Yet in the centre
A single smile

A world, destroying itself
Dying more everyday
Yet always in the centre
A single hope.
