The Fruit of Life

I took a bite from the fruit of life,

A taste at once both bitter and sweet,


Its juices ran down my chin,

Rich with memories and experience

And a cry of delight broke from my lips at the wonder of it all.

I took another bite and another,

Each one more fulfilling than the last of this rare yield,

Joy and hope in every seed.
