Cantaloupe

 

Some time after midnight,
my belly craved a snack.
I visualized a cantaloupe
while laying on my back.

It hadn’t been a good day;
I simply loafed about.
The cantaloupe had crossed my mind,
but I had opted out.

It was too much work, I thought;
too much slicing, too much mess…
So I ate the easy things
and continued to depress.

But in that moment, late at night,
when the day was done,
I decided I would slice,
and in the process, have some fun!

I thought about my future,
while I cut and ate with glee.
A brilliant plan flashed in my mind,
as decision set me free.
