Bruised Apple

I will endure my peer with all of my being I will finish with a smile of encouragement I will look upon him without shame For a bruised apple still contains nutrients And owns a core of growth Let no one leave him rotting He must fall and be picked up Cradled in soft, warm embrace September 4, 2013

    Now I want to eat apples......and grapes. Thanks! =D But, truly, this is deep & quite a message here for all to attain within their own hearts. Look through the "bruise" or "scars", to still value & crave a need to know everything about them. It's so vital for ones' heartbeat to feel this way. Fantastic work, per usual!
