I Am A Dark-Roast Coffee Bean

I am one in many,

My flavor is familiar,

Yet not liked by many,



I am ground to the core,

For other people's pleasure,

Mix me with sugar,

I am everyone's treasure


I am dark and so quiet,

Among many just like me,

But we are softened with milk,

Until we are no longer we


I am transformed into something new,

Something more people will drink,

When I wish more would appreciate,

The taste that I bring


I am one, but I am strong,

And one day I will be gone,

But there will be more just like me,

A Dark-Roast Coffee Bean
