I wrote this poem to document my upbringing, exposure and experience with romantic love. I used flowers to symbolize stages of my development as a person. I also used flowers to symbolize my greed and hedonism. I wouldn't have written anything at all if it weren't for the support of my mother Kathy, Melanie Clinton, Writer's Bloc President Starlit Taie, and all of my wonderful friends. Thank you for pushing me to get out there.
