“Stop and smell the roses”

Some people might look at a red rose and think “beautiful & lovely”

But unlike most people, I imagine when a rose blooms its as if it is rebelling against the ugliness that humanity puts upon the world and in its own heart.

A red rose wears its thorns like blades, pointed out in defiance against society
and its self perpetuating insanity of hatred and destruction…

…I feel like that rose sometimes…
