Fruit that is not harvested will fall.
Produce that is not consumed, will spoil.
This is natural.
When they fall they feed the earth by nourishing its smallest creatures.
It’s not their fault if we didn’t have space, time, or the desire to make use of them first.
What about when people fall?
Decay kisses everyone.
Still, it’s not evil. But maybe it is wasteful.
Have you harvested yourself? Used your potential?
I may not be to everyone’s taste, but I am worth harvesting.
