Great is the discontent
Of the man who demands
That a different fruit grow
On the trees of his life.
It may be that he desires
A better quality fruit,
For which he must ensure
A rich soil and conducive moisture,
But for a plum tree to produce peaches?
Being exasperated that the plums
Are too smoothly textured
Too fleshly and too sweet-
This is a recipe for continual disappointment
Not born out of inadequate circumstance,
For the fruit is perfectly able to nourish,
But born out of failure to appreciate
The seasons and the fruit therein.
