We are all eggs, you and I
Same hard shell, same internal workings,
Yet none live quite the same story.
Born into different environments
Breed with different purposes.
You are all some type of egg
Will you end up in a grocery bag as another ingredient ?
Just another speck of what you once were.
Simply a small part of an altogether different concoction….
A cake cannot come about without first braking you.
No matter how delicious
You are a household egg
Will you be laid in the wild?
Upon some tree in China, some mountain in Alaska.
Fall victim to gravity or end up in the mouth of
some snake, yet again only taking the place of nutrients
unfit to survive among those whom came before you.
You are failure to evolution
Will the boiling water harden you internally,
Transforming everything except your beautiful shell?
Make yourself stronger
Will you give birth to turtles who search for the sea
Birds who experience the world from above
Or snakes who know not what fear is?
It is not your surrounding that define you
Its what you’re made of.
We are all eggs, you and I.
