Ripening Banana

The yellow fruit

that brings Potassium—

Cherish it or not,

it will end.

Remember the good times,

not the bad.

Remember the sweet smells,

not the rancid ones.

Some cause chaos

from scars of the past.

Some speak of insolence,

but most do what’s right

to survive.


Plant your seed

for generations of the future—

they must continue the cycle.

You help me,

then I return the favor.

We can coexist

with no problems.

You grow up and so do I,

except you have even longer

to grow.
