the prettiest roses

embrace the pain

control it

tell it what it can
and can’t do

be at peace while
the anger starts
to flow

that the prettiest
roses grow in the
darkest shit

big butts and
smiles should
never be trusted

and your children
are supposed to
hate you until they
reach a certain age
