Sweet Life

Journey through the life of a cherry candy.
Begin hard and stubborn - holding in flavor.
Give way to a pink bunny, soft and sweet.
Bunny hops away and is transformed by evolutionary miracle, into a round tangy ball of citrus that releases floods in your mouth from its sour pucker.
Replaced then by a gummy molasses of fading sugar-
more hibernating bear than hoppy bunny.
Tired, used, fading.
Relish it. It will soon be over.

Seriously... this was all just a good slow suck on a cherry candy, but in reading it, sounds almost like the cycle of life.
