Iím looking at my plate and panicking.
So terrified of what may happen if
I let myself give in, succumb, partake.
I will not let a morsel pass my lips.
Who knew that food could be a scary thing?
To eat should be a simple task but no,
Thereís more to this than getting nourishment.
To me, to eat means giving up control.
I fear that giving up the only thing
I feel I can control will only make
Me feel like I have failed at evírything.
And so the thought of eating makes me shake.
I know that I need help and I can ask
My loving friends or even the Divine.
But Iím afraid Heíd take it all away -
The only thing I sometimes feel is mine.
I know itís coming down to fear or faith.
Although I feel afraid of what Iíll lose,
Perhaps He has a better life for me.
I know that it is time for me to choose.
