 THE PLUM

You can learn that you cannot be loved by all people.

You can be the finest PLUM in the world,

RIPE – JUICY – SUCCULENT

and offer yourself to all.

However you must remember there will always be people who do not like plums.

You can learn to understand that if you are the world’s finest plum,

and someone you like does not like plums,

you have a choice of becoming a banana.

However, you need to be warned that if you choose to become a banana,

you will be a second-rate banana.

However, you can always be the best plum.

You need to understand that if you choose to be a second-rate banana,

there will always be people who do not like bananas,

Furthermore, you can spend your life trying to become the best banana (which is impossible if you are a plum),

Or - You can seek again to be the

BEST PLUM!!
