Roses

Roses are a waste of time

They lie to you

Making you think they’re beautiful

But really, they’re covered in thorns

.

That will scratch you

And hurt you

And prick you

And wound you

.

You thought you wanted beauty

When really you wanted the sun

You thought you thirsted for flowers

When really you needed water

.

Roses are a fucking waste of time

Let them grow in the fields

While you stand tall

Go off and be your own flower.
