Still 32 Flavors

Flavors are continually added and taken away in life. Some of the new flavors added aren't that great. Some of them are just nasty - bitter, even. Some are a vast improvement. Some are new unknown flavors that have to be tested. Some weren't that popular in the first place but they somehow managed to hang on for ages. Some are even retired against our deepest wishes. Who knows if the maker will bring them out of retirement someday or if they are gone for good.

32 Flavors

I'm not trying to give my life meaning by demeaning you
and I would like to state for the record
I did everything that I could do
I'm not saying that I'm a saint
I just don't want to live that way
no, I will never be a saint
but I will always say
squint your eyes and look closer
I'm not between you and your ambition
I am a poster girl with no poster
I am thirty-two flavors and then some

There is always light in the darkest corners of our lives. We just have to open our eyes wider to enjoy the feast!

Just remember the nasty bitter flavors will be replaced with sweeter more delectable ones. Keep strong. You have the best two flavors in your life right now- R & P!
