What thoughts do you ponder
As you try to sit so quiet
Ignoring that inner rumble
As you try sticking to a diet.

What is your favorite food
Do you like a little spice
Chicken, beef, lamb or tofu
How about red beans and rice.

It is not easy to ignore
Thoughts of foods that call
Almost smelling the aroma
Maybe a portion, very small.

The attempt was valiant at best
Yet I close as I rise to my feet
Tomorrow will be a better day
I’m off for something to eat.

  1. Sounds like a plan. Believe I’ll do that too.

    I like plain old home cooked food unless it is pizza. I have been on a diet since the day I could open my own mouth to feed myself, lol

    Sounds like me when I am trying to cut down on what I eat 🙂
