A 'Healthier' Version of the Apples Poem
A 'Healthier' Version of the Apples Poem
11/07/2011

I love the Apples Poem and I've heard it many times before, but the line "the apples at the top think something is wrong with them" always bothered me. Not all of us quality girls think something is wrong with us. So I rewrote it and made a "healthier" version. Hope you like it:

"Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't reach for the good ones because they don't want to climb that high and they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they settle for the rotten apples on the ground, which aren't as good, but easy to get. They don't realize that with every step they climb, not only do they get stronger but the apples get more and more delicious. The apples at the top are well aware of how special they are. They have a strong core and they have decided to reach their full potential before being picked. So they hang on, soaking up the sun and improving themselves. At last, the men who are brave and determined enough to reach the very top of the tree are rewarded with the biggest, juiciest, and most delicious apples."
