You may be the world’s tastiest apple,
And all of your flesh may be without a hint of a dapple,
But there will be people who will never venerate you.
You may choose to become a pear
Because someone you love reveres a pear.
But remember, an apple turned a pear is only but a second-rate pear.
You must realize that there will still be those who miss the banana-you
And those who distaste the pear-you.
In all, you must learn and understand that you cannot be loved by all.
You may struggle to be the best second-rate pear,
But remember that a rat that wins the rat-race is just another rat to a bear.
Finally, you may decide to embrace your inner apple, and be the leader amongst your peer.
Some men are not meant to be happy; they are made to be great!
Normal is overrated,
And true happiness, the subject of many a debate.
As far back as man, or be it extra-terrestial, the concept, outdated.
Some men will rather starve than be called fat or pale.
Some men will rather be killed than bear witness to a false tale.
Some men will die alone, and others will die with their loved ones at bay.
Some men will try to be different, but dead bodies all decay.
All through history, Man has sought to make his life easier;
To get a lot more comfortable, by any means, quicker.
He has sought to be forever in his youth;
To seal within himself, his soul like a selection from the old juke-booth.
