Roses

A boy gives roses to the girl he likes

This is usually how it goes

It’s the way society programmed us since young

But I never got a rose

Everyone else I knew did

I actually came to hate roses because of it

It made me wonder if I was just never liked by anyone

Especially boys

But then I met Alex

And roses became beautiful again

Only this time I didn’t wait to be given the rose

I gave the rose to Alex
