Forest Gump knew 

Innocence has a way of being

Unencumbered by the complex

when life is a box of chocolates

filled with many different 

sweet treats for the taking.


Life can be all that sweet goo 

Bitting into diverse flavors

Maybe startled to the taste

Maybe the texture

Maybe it’s just right

Life can be all chocolate squares

with carmel filling for me

Only… it’s not


Forest Gump knew

No secret to him that we all

had a soft center full of the goo

worthy of being tasted 

Worthy of being bit into

If you like carmel filled ones

You  might like to bite into me
