Chocolate and Vanilla

There are many different flavors in the world
But none like Chocolate and Vanilla
Chocolate is rich and dark and creamy
While Vanilla is light and fluffy and soft
They are both ice cream
They are both choice desserts
Vanilla is mostly seen dipping with fudge
Or hanging out with the whipped cream
While chocolate remains in the ice cream machine
Waiting to be pulled down
Vanilla is decorated with sprinkles
And placed with cookies on the side
As chocolate stays put
Untouched and out of sight
Vanilla gets a cherry on top
Wearing the finest and longest cones
But when Chocolate first arrives
It does not even get a bowl
It is on a plate with the brownies and cupcakes
Who long to be with Vanilla’s party
Chocolate becomes desperate to be with Vanilla
And so the dark swirls around the light
Beginning the long process of acceptance
It tries to be light like Vanilla is
It tries to be fluffy like Vanilla is
It tries to be soft like Vanilla is
It tries to be loved like Vanilla is
It is not until Chocolate is spilled on the floor
That it realizes that it cannot be like Vanilla
Until is realizes that it will never become Vanilla
Until it realizes that it is not Vanilla
So Chocolate goes back to the machine
And waits for someone to come for it
While it watches Vanilla
Experiencing all that it could not
