Look what I found from a mother to the earth, so selfless of her. The sun it won't give up so I soak in it. The color of ripe depends on the recipient. The way I see it I'm ready for whatever. Life is sweet, salty, sour and bitter. Umami. Aye mami! Take what you get and give all you have to it. I didn't write this. I just recite this. It came to me like this. I put it down clean. It tastes so Umami y poco picante. Allegro andante. We put it down clean. A seed faith offering lying beside me on the road and it's screaming out, Ryan. Take a bite now. Savor the taste. Don't you worry. It won't do to waste. I'm gonna use every bit of it's energy and send some your way because it seems like you need it. Serenade her. Tell her she's loved. Under her canopy caress her with your lungs. One hand on my chest. The other above my head. Eyes open wide. The life you've been dreaming of.
