They say that life is like a box

of chocolate, that you never know

what you're gonna get.

But life doesn't come packaged

neatly in a box, it isn't presented

to you on bended knee with a big

red bow by a lover. Life

doesn't come with a sheet

describing each chocolate, or a

list of ingredients and nutritional

value. You can't browse shelves

and pick out the pieces you want.

Life is more like a forgotten piece

of Halloween candy you find on

the sidewalk on November first.
