So frightening, I donít know what to do.
Can scarcely breathe, fear swells inside of me,
Cuts off all reasoning and keeps me bound.
Who knew how scary nourishment could be?
Iím certain that from just a bit or two,
Iíll fail to stop and lose complete control.
Entire meal may even pass my lips.
That possibility just scares me so.
But how can I be so afraid of food?
I know I need it to survive and yet
I wonít partake of what sustains my life.
My fear of food exceeds my fear of death.
Perplexed, I donít know why I feel like this.
Why canít I just allow myself to eat?
It seems so simple, yet itís hard to do.
One bite should not be such a major feat.
Iím so confused, what causes me to feel
Like eating means Iím weak and giving in?
Thereís more beyond the surface I am sure -
I know I need to pray and look within.
Oh loving Lord, I ask you to reveal
The reasons underneath I cannot see.
And Ďtil confusion clears and fear gives way,
Oh Lord, please hold my hand and dine with me.
