Choosing They say you traded innocence for pomegranates, such was the twinkle in your eye as you untied the umbilical cord, being very careful to bless the shadowy scapegoat of your choosing should you be discovered as desiring not one, but the best of both worlds, always wanting to be there, then here, never settled, unable to be complete unless in transit, blaming your heart's captors rather than admitting your fears, seeking the sun while living in your own shadow for all but yourself to see.
