Like a fruit not yet ripened,
This heart is not yet ready to taste.

Let it grow.

It needs a little time to sweeten; perfect for picking.
It needs a few more moments to season.

In the sun, in the shelter, in the rain.

The core needs strengthening,
And be watchful the outside is free of scars.

Touch it; squeeze it to know when it is ready.
Pleasing to the eye, it will be.

Even better to the taste.

Among all the others, this one appeals to you.
It grows for you, with pride.
It blossoms in anticipation.

Flourishing in hunger of its destiny.

And when ready,
Pick it.
Taste it.
