A Pineapple Poem
A pineapple takes 2(!) years to grow,
So have patience with you because you’re all you know,
Keep faith in process!
Because It’s all progress.
Just try to go with the flow-
As we work, we bloom from within,
Remember you’re blossoming even when
You can’t see the fruits of your labors.
Keep a thick skin, you,
Always stay sweet.
Make yourself your favorite person to meet.
Trademark by Evangeline Joy
Be sweet, be tough,
Remember that you are enough.
