The Fruit Told Me To Do It

I do believe one can consider themselves at "rock bottom" when they decide to take life advice from a bottle of Nakéd's All Natural Cherry and Pomegranate Juice Smoothie.

No, for real.

There's a lot of shyt going on right now, moral dilemmas I have to consider, serious grown-up things that keep me up at night, too many people depending on me for one thing or another, and I keep trying to find a way to just make it all go away.

Or maybe I can go away.

But then I think, no, you can't run away from stuff because with my luck, stuff has a tricked out Escalade with a'll find me at the local McDonald's passed out from a french fry overdose in a matter of seconds.

However today, as I desperately sought some sort of energy boost that did not involve the bitter coffee beans of one of the fifty Starbucks near my job, I saw this juice, and it promised me enough "cherry-pomegranate-power" to get through the day. And wouldn't you know it? It came with a message just for me, that might just get me through life:

"Shake well! Separation is natural."

And that spoke to me.

yes, i'm going to turn
and walk away
you can watch me go
or make me stay
