Black Coffee

I didn't like black coffee at first.
We tend to reject things that are bitter, 
Or that make us feel bitter.
But sometimes bitter things make us better.
A beam of light is seen most clearly
When the world is at its darkest.
I didn't like black coffee.
I didn't like a world not diluted
And coated with sugar.
I didn't like it unsweetened.
But that bitter flavor of reality is sometimes the sweetest,
Because the deepest bit of truth,
The texture that lured you into coffee in the first place,
Is what tastes the strongest.
