I Am Almond

A Poem by Rc R. Vagilidad

Public stigma, shame, and regrets. Be who you are no matter how hard the World is. Choose happiness if you are not ready. Believe.


I am almond.
In Hershey's Kisses. 
In every chocolate branded.
For it is fame that has brought those almonds invisible.

And it stood flat on your palm.
Waiting for your acceptance.
And consume, and melts and disintegrates.
Everyone stood up, and tasted the chocolate
I am almond, an aftertaste.

But this coated sweetness is weak.
Facades are beautifully engraved
To its nonentity.
And by there, it lives. Grows.

Forever in people.
I am almond, waiting to be uncovered.
I will put this chocolate inside me
And they will be waiting after I am tasted

If acceptance could just be Hershey's Kisses
With almond waiting forth their unveiling
People will just take the sweet
And I am almond be understood.

It is hard to accept freedom
That is when you are strong
Covered by weakness, too sweet
You are smiling a regret.
