I Hate My Childhood Self

As a child I hated mushrooms
Always moaned and groaned on stir fry night
Stirring the vegetables around in that bowl and not eating any

Now I love mushrooms
And I hate my childhood self
Now I love myself

I roam through this grocery store in search of mushrooms
Unable to find them at first, hidden away next to the processed fruit smoothies
Now I hate processed smoothies
And I love mushrooms
And I love myself
