Rose Gardens We remain forever changed by the scenes we have witnessed, enriched by new perspectives, carrying humanity in our hearts. We stand ready for the next plot twist that this life requires of us, our souls soaked in awe. Pen in hand, together we shall write the masterpiece we were meant to live. This is only an intermission. When the curtains close and we are freed from our roles, let us exit the stage gracefully welcomed by rose gardens, having danced upon thorns and embraced the soft light of love.
