Can scarcely breathe, fear swells inside of me,
Cuts off all reasoning and keeps me bound.
Who knew how scary nourishment could be?
I’m certain that from just a bit or two,
I’ll 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 won’t partake of what sustains my life.
My fear of food exceeds my fear of death.
Perplexed, I don’t know why I feel like this.
Why can’t I just allow myself to eat?
It seems so simple, yet it’s hard to do.
One bite should not be such a major feat.
I’m so confused, what causes me to feel
Like eating means I’m weak and giving in?
There’s 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 ‘til confusion clears and fear gives way,
Oh Lord, please hold my hand and dine with me.
