Peace Lily (2014)

It is not cheesy, but very easy
I’ve been watering the plants
I guess some died and some cried
But, that peace lily’s got one flower

What did you do differently?

My mom taught me how to love
My friends showed me how to hate
But no one ever told me how to make you

What did you do differently?

Did it stand out since its sprout?
I’ve been using my glasses
I suppose somehow it became exceptional
That peace lily’s got me forever

What made you do differently?

My dad taught me how to leave
My cats showed me how to bite
But no one ever told me how to make you

What did you do differently?
