Even the flowers

Car Mirror 2

I keep wanting to run
for the hills
To cut off my head
and replace it
with flowers

But I can't escape
the fear
and the anger

I carry them with me
they've blinded my entry

into the places
and people
I imbued with beauty

So that even the flowers
are doubted now

Yes, even the flowers

are cowards

Well done as always. May we all weather the storm and if we do remember that our Democracy isn't guaranteed.

With so many struggles to face, no one can be courageous in the face of them all. Not even the flowers.
