fruit of life & death

Ever bit into an apple
Sweet and rotten at the same time
Deceptively crunchy and bright on the outside

Chewing into your death
Licking and salivating at your pain to come.

Just trying to fill your stomach.

But why, oh why did you pick this tree?

Leaving you addicted to the sin of not loving yourself
Leading you from the God in yourself
Destroying your own ability to nurture nature.

So take a step back.
Run before the sins of your past catch you
Pray before The Universe refuses to not forgive you

Stop killing yourself with bittersweet tears of beauty once known
And embrace what is shown
But pick out what is love.
