Apples and Oranges and Pears, Oh My

DIANE'S POETRY

Apples and Oranges and Pears, Oh My

by Diane Adele Strong

                   




APPLES, AND ORANGES, AND PEARS OH, MY!

 

There once was an apple that lived in a tree,

who cried, Oh ... if only an orange I could be -

I would be very happy just not to be me.

 

The orange heard him crying and said,

Let me see I know that if I were a pear, I would

be the happiest fruit that you ever would see.

 

The pear said, I think that if I could jump down

from this tree where Im hanging

right onto the ground, Id hunt for some way

to grow hands ... and grow feet ...

Id be so happy ... my life so complete.

Then ... from above ... a voice they all heard -

It was God who was speaking -

He gave them these words:

 

I created the world ... youre part of the Plan

Be content and be thankful

dont you understand?

Each one has a role in My Grand Design -

Some are called aardvarks ...

and some ... porcupines!

 

I leave it to you ... now what will it be? -

Choose to remain quite safe in your tree?

Or live on the ground - if you have the nerve

but you might end up as a jar of preserves!

 

The apple said, Tell me ... oh, what

should we do?  I guess that the smart

thing is ... listen to You!

 

The orange and the pear agreed to comply,

and God said, Remember ... and please realize,

that joy and contentment ... now make no mistake -

greatly depends on the choices you make.

 

Ask Me to guide you ... take My advice -

Listen for My voice to lead you through life.

If you will do this ... just wait and see -

Youll be quite happy to live in a tree!

 

The story ends here ... as all stories must -

The apple, the orange, and the pear came to trust

in Gods plan for their lives, the rest of their days -

(and, they didnt end up as preserves - by the way!)
