the box sat in the road.
withered and stepped on.
by the cars flying by.
young people they were invincible.
hey baby i need your help.
i need your structure and confidence in me.
i'm sorry that i'm dumb,
i wish i was better at explaining.
put down the opiate flowers.
it's easier, you're not encumbered.
watch them flourish before your eyes.
weakened by stress and age,
the petals dried and fell on the ground.
