Old, Old Writing--Johnny Appleseed

Johnny Appleseed
1995 (I was 18 yrs old)

I saw no apple trees
I didn't make it there

Perhaps I should have tried harder
To find them somewhere.

Apples are a better fruit
Than some I've had before.

There's something sweet in every bite
Even at the core.

But even so...
I saw no apple trees.

I thought it would be easier
Simple as a breeze.

Now, where I'm going,
I really can not say.

But perhaps I'll find oranges,
Somewhere along the way.
