When you see fruits
like mangoes or avocados,
do you just assume that they are sweet?
you need to hold it in you palms,
press it to see if it’s soft,
smell it to know the freshness.
You simply see if it’s yellow,
fill your shopping basket with them
and bring them home
only to realize they were sour.
Be picky when it comes to fruits
and the people you let in your life.
