Our Community As Grapes

Grapes.What a wonderful creation by God (or a great evolution). They are lustrous with flavor and are quite good for your health. The small, packed, bubble of greatness embodies(in a figurative way) what many consider the “man”. Like a grape, a man needs to be fun and nice to be around and once you “break the ice” (or break the skin in terms of a grape), you should get a extravagant burst of fun and wonderful times.

Just like the metaphor of a single grape being the “idol of a man”, a cluster of grapes do metaphorically symbolize our society. Grapes grow on their mother tree and they are nurtured there. Just like grapes, our mothers (or who ever took care of us) were our tree an they fed and nurtured us. As for grapes, the sun is their father, they are reliant on the sun, yet the sun didn’t give birth to them and are not only emotionally attached to them, but also physically attached.

Just like us, grapes grow up in  a community filled with peers. They grow in a cluster of other grapes and near by there are even more colonies. Their period of developing is just like ours and until they are at the perfect period of time, they are not good. If the grapes are too old, then they will be squishy and not as fun to eat. Just like them, children can often be annoying when they are young. Young adults in our society are fun to be around as they are always energetic and have great ideas, and old people have fun stories, but they cannot do much as their bodies wont allow them to.

As in our society, grapes have the occasional “sour grape”. These people (and grapes) destroy the world instead of helping it. A “sour grape” or a grape that is infected with a diseases infects other grapes in the proximity. A bad influence in our society taint the children and others that we come in contact on a day to day basis. These people are not needed in our society, but sadly they exist.

A community of grapes are a great analogy for our society. They show many characteristics that we show (figuratively). Everyone could learn a few things from grapes and how they act. Bottom line is. Grapes. Are. Awesome.
