    “Why’d she have to die?”
    A little boy asks his father
    He is talking about his sister
    He had seen his sister cutting
    He had seen the scars upon her
    But he didn’t know what
    Was really happening to her
    His father asked him
    A simple question back
    “Why do we kill flowers?”
    The little boy thought about this
    And then looked up at his father
    And with a sad look on his face
    “Because they’re pretty, daddy”
    The boys’ father looked down at him
    “She didn’t think she was, did she?”
    The boy shook his head and looked down
    He had always thought his sister was pretty
    He now thought of her as a flower
    Because the pretty flowers always die.

    But what his father forgot to tell him,
    Not all the pretty flower’s die
    Some live through storms
    And some live through drought
    But in the end they’re still as pretty.
    They live as some of the prettier ones.
    Most people think they’re
    Even more pretty than the rest.
    Now that the little boy has grown older
    He discovered for himself
    That some flowers manage to stay alive
    With just a little bit of outside damage
    Even when flowers
    Suffer through storms
    They’re still absolutely beautiful.
    Just like flowers change the world
    With all of their differences
    People can change the world
    In the same exact way.
