While most saw you for your luscious curves,
lustrous texture, savoury odour,
I connected with that seed inside of you.
Me, a caterpillar amongst worms,
who was the same as you were inside.
While you were lauded for what wasn't even you,
I was decried for the same.
We both shared the destiny to be magnificent,
only you never had to experience failure as I did.
You were heralded as a gift while I was shooed away.
You had a cosy life all along,
when I had to struggle to become me.
Perhaps that is why after we transformed,
you were stuck with your roots in the soil providing shelter to travellers,
while I was free.
Perhaps that is why you serve me.
