Bitter Fruits

Aug 28 2011

bitter fruit hangs low, brightly colored
good in the way that soy is beneficial
good in the sense that it pulls life from the vine
one bite like a harsh blast of cold air.

but if I eat it long enough
I will get used to the taste;
and longer still,
I will enjoy the complex flavors.
So while I long for sweet,
I won’t pass up what is given.

I will feast on the bitter fruits
until I love what I have become through them.
