One Minute And Then It Is Time To Eat

Updated on November 4, 2010

It Is So Nice To Eat Again

The simple pleasures that others miss

We take for granted so much and appreciate so little

We are on with our day and push it to the last hour

Some how the day disappears and a new day rears its ugly head

People struggle through rough times and complain that these are the worst

They never stop to realize how far we have come

The food that makes us happy and fills the void in our belly

It is too often forgotten as soon as we are satisfied

Try going a few days without food and see how your priorities change

See what once was important doesn't even seem to matter

No one will listen to the man who has learned what it is like to be hungry

For they don't want to be reminded of the things they have control over

They don't want to change their negative thoughts and have time to sit and think

It might make them a little bit nicer and sweeter than they care to be

So they can no longer be a hard ass or was that a jack ass

One of the same to me

So as I give my blessings once again of the meal I am about to eat

Thanking God or any higher power that you believe

I am here and never have gone starving yet

I am tasting all the food that I love and welcome with open arms

As I fill the hole in my belly this time

I feel it still leaks since I will be back again later to fill it once more

Each day I do the same thing

Looking for a way to cap it once and for all

Now I can enjoy all the foods that fill me up

Until one day I can say I have had enough

I can't eat another bite

I am stuffed to the gills and I can go a whole year without eating

That will be the only time

I will not want for the most delicious mouth watering food

They makes me happy every day

      good to thank god for all the food he gives us..... i love the scripture where he tells us the birds of the field, never go hungry and neither will we..... Sometimes it is easy to forget to be grateful. You sound in a very positive mood at the moment. Stay there forever my friend.
