This piece is about those who are never satisfied...no matter what they get, they always want more. Sometimes it's best to appreciate the small things. As they say, often the best things in life are free.

She said,
I feel the waves overcoming me,
Most ride them like adept surfers tasting a delicious thrill.
Why is it that Iím not that way?
Dare I say itóWhy me?

They say life is like a bowl of cherries,
Itís what you make it.
I took the cherriesómade cherry pie,cherry juice,cherries jubilee
And still donít have what I want.
Iíve manufactured the fruit and left nothing behind.

In the end though, itís only been a game.
I won and I lost.

As her mind lamented, she noticed herself
A perfect white smile, high cheekbones, flawless skin

And, her soul respondedÖ..
Eating cherries ripened straight from the tree
To experience their flavor for the sake of good fruit
Allows us to say,
Iím thankful.
