A symbolic gesture of a rose
The tendency to grant forgiveness
But unhinged minds
Forget the act
After all it was faked
To get their lover back
So they’d forget
The beatings, the raised voices
As they self-medicate
With pills, liquor
Whatever takes them away
For a little while
And makes them
Happy for a moment
The gesture of the rose
Seals their fate
The unending cycle
Taught always to forgive
The family curse goes on
