Le crème de le crème

Churn, churn, and churn.

We're rats born into a world of cream, a bucket. The moment we stop churning, we fall out of the bucket and get replaced by a younger, more efficient mouse. We try hard and churn hard not to let that happen, not to face termination. At least that's what I used to think I was, a rat.

I've come to learn that the truth is, however, is that we're the bucket, we're the cream, and each of us possesses their own quality, nature. The rats are but life altering events churning into us, making us wiser, deeper, steeper, and more solid; making us fall into rot or rise to an occasion of appreciation and self respect.

One can accept becoming a block of edible cheese that would eventually be absorbed by life or stored on a shelf to rot away in vain, or struggle into remaining pure cream and fight the rats away from their essence.

Would you change in order to please a couple rats?

I believe we've all done that.

Touching, on many levels... And yeah we have all done that, I for one am sure I did...

Another absolutely beautiful post and a great and very thought provoking metaphor. I think it probably applies to everyone of us- that's what is so great about all your posts Ragin- you speak for us all!
Ramadan Kareem!

I really like your writing style. Direct and touching. Similiar to my way of thinking actualy :D
