Red is for Roses.

Everyday is veterans day

Red is for Roses,

So we're told.
So final, dark, vivid and bold,
Protect it with might, violence and gold.

Red is for roses,
Architectures​ adorned with stained glass,
Horror stories, fiction and non, both recent and past,
And high-end sports cars, because it means "FAST!".
so final

Red is for roses.
I wish it were just so.
The truth is, the answer is "No!".
It represents "STOP!", while green means go!

Red is for roses.
What do you think?
Have you ever washed blood from a cut in the sink?
Have you ever seen a gunshot victim brought back to life from the brink?

Red is for roses,
Didn't you know?
It all depends on what you sow/sew
Whether it's seeds for flowers, or a bloody chest with a hole.

So the next time you look into the face and eyes of a mother who has lost a child in war, just tell her and yourself...

Red is for Roses.
Michael Champion

You're never alone!
