“My poem is intended to make the statement that not everything is how it seems. Sometimes the most cheerful souls house monsters behind their facades, and sometimes the prettiest flowers have roots that rot beneath the surface. Nothing should be taken at face value when all we do is work to ensure that those faces never crack. There are some who dress to the nines in florals, but can never be the garden they wish to see bloom.”
