Cultivating 

apples

I didn’t know it before,
but an apple tree will break under its own weight,
if it is not tended to.

I feel bad for my carelessness with the tree.
It would have been nice to keep it,
but it taught me something.

I think people are just the same as my tree.
They have to be cared for, or they break.
And if they do, you might lose something sweet.
