'Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates...' (Forrest Gump Had A Point There)
I look back now
on that Twelfth of April,
the day I first got
my Box of Chocolates.
The Chocolates were Assorted
at random in some unknown factory.
Some were Milky Smooth,
others had ribbons of Caramel-
a Sweet and Luscious treat.
And some were Dark as night
(those were an Acquired Taste) .
Of course there were those with Nuts
that got stuck in my teeth,
and some of those Chocolates
were Hard and Half-stale-
but I chewed through them
(and yes, I'm still chewing) .
And as I reminisce
about my Life-sized Box,
I think to myself: ...
I can't believe you tried to lead me on
And give me a fake haven for my pain.
Looking back, I see that I was wrong
If I thought you a shelter from my rain.
When I cried, you bade me wipe my tears
And reassured me with Moon-rivaled smiles.
Also you were known to give my fears
Something to fear, protecting all the while.
Alas! You cast my hapless love aside;
