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.
