The forest is a
Division goes beyond
the investigative eye.

The innocent flower is
Cutthroat and jagged -
hard and bedraggled -

She is a seductive pandora's box.

A killed and killed killer,
     no mercy,
          no thought.
She is selfish and cruel.
A player and pawn in the game of natural selection.

And then she blooms.
I wrote this poem to refute the quote "A flower doesn't think about competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms".
