The Fruit Reached For

by Lysander Xanthus

Age Group: Adult



Children were we, in the Garden of Destiny
We journeyed through its splendor, and came to an apple tree
So small were we, of the dangling fruit we could only dream
We wandered on and grew older, forgetting about what was seen

Adults were we, beneath the stars so bright and distant
We had the daring to reach up in that shining instant
And the fruit of our labor we finally held in our hands!
The Fruit of Destiny....

I was naive to not realize victory is rarely clean
Too late I realized my grasping tore the branches of the tree
Was this what I reached for? Was this the child's dream?
Oh, not to know if all my daring was fate or mere folly

The fruit reached for
The fruit that inspired
The fruit so desired
The fruit that destroyed the flower

One bite and what I knew changed
At the end of the game the child opens his eyes
I won the game, but truth was my prize
One bite and I was changed
