Dumb Soil

A Rose drowning in tar
Packet of razor blades
Nothing but time remains
The shaping of his broken reality

A Rose could never grow there
For a hopeless romantic is all that he is
A life full of abuse is all he'll ever know
For he copes with the betrayal of his mind

began with him brainwashed to believe he was worthless
There's nothing that grows here in dumb soil
No Love, No peace only hatred for himself

There is a sad truth to your poem - alienated youth, world wide, condemned to depression or violence through lack of education and self worth.
The cynical would say it is a means of controlling the masses.
