Smell the Roses

Smell the Roses

i stop
to smell the roses

i always
stop
to smell the roses

i do nothing
ever
but stop
and smell
the roses

it's a profound saying,
"stop and smell the roses"
so i do

i stop
and smell the roses
but i can't tell you
what they smell like
except
roses
since there's 
nothing
more for me 
to compare them to
since all i know
is the scent
of roses

but it don't matter
since there's never
anybody around
to tell
about the scent
of the roses
since my strolls
where i stop
to smell the roses
begin
and end
at
nowhere

i don't mind
going nowhere
doing nothing
but smelling the roses
with nobody else
ever around 
cause
stopping
to smell the roses
is such a profound thing
at least
the saying
makes it seem
that way
