Don’t Eat the Fruit (a poem)

“When reminded about the premortal shouting for joy,
in some moments, we wonder what all the shouting was about.”
-Neal A. Maxwell 

Don’t eat the fruit 
Ignore the damn snake
The joys you experience 
Won’t outweigh the pain

Keep yourself safe
Avoid bitter cups
Maybe it’s worth the
Things you’ll give up

You can’t stop the train
So don’t even board
You don’t have a clue of the
Wreckage in store
Sure thought I could handle it, thought I was strong
But lately it seems I could not be more wrong.
