The Stories We Tell

The stories we tell ourselves

about what life

is,

does,

means,

will make our hearts

or break our hearts.

The choice,

I suppose,

is ours.

Make, break

or both, sometimes.

If only the answer were simple.

Then again…

what is simple?

A Beautiful Choice

Today.

What a beautiful choice.

Another Day in The Fruit Bowl

There is no doubt about it.

A pineapple is,

and always will be,

a pineapple.

It does not look like a peach.

It does not feel like a peach, or taste like a peach.

If you want a peach, pick a peach.

Unless of course you prefer pineapple,

in which case,

you know what to do.

Life.

Always just another day

in the fruit bowl.
