Cacao to Chocolate
I am a colony of cacao beans,
sitting in my shell nobody to disturb me
A loud crack heard,
the shell that I call home is being broken into.
Five long fleshy weird things from the bright blue abyss,
reach out and grab me from the only place I know
I’m then wrapped in a blanket of green
for days upon days.
My new home starts to grow on me
though I’m then exposed to a very intense light from above
that strips me of all my moisture.
The five long fleshy weird things return
Only to toss me on a flat surface surrounded by fire,
A heavenly scent soon reaches me
I then realize it’s coming from me.
Once the fire dissipates I”m thrown into
Some sort of half sphere,
Where an oval-y rock comes out of nowhere and beats me.
I’ve taken on a new form,
One similar to liquid but rather sticky.
I’m suddenly pushed into a silver cylinder
Along with white sprinkles, a yellow rectangle
white powder, and clear liquid
where we are then spun around and around
until we become one.
The giant being from above shouts,
“Chocolate con leche” with so much joy
They then devoured me until nothing of me was left
But I’ll gladly die knowing I made them happy.
