An Alternate Reality

Wasted Food

As a child I was told to clean my plate
Even if I took too much
Even if I was full
No dessert if you don’t eat it all
Wasted Food is Bad

As I got older and made my own choices
That mantra was still in my head so
I ate too much
Even when I was full
And ate dessert too, since
Wasted Food is Bad

But now I’m living with the consequences of that lesson
And I weigh too much
And I constantly struggle to find healthy balance
So I need to remember this lesson as well
Waisted Food is Bad!
