What is it that I crave when I say that I am hungry
|The hunger within is hard to describe.
It's a void that consumes me - side to side.
It's not just the food that I crave.
It's the attention and affection that I yearn.
Do potato chips and pretzels really equal a hug?
Will the cheesecake and ice cream make me less lonely?
Does chocolate really nourish my soul?
All these do are make me larger and larger -
Bursting my seams to fill the void.
Shouldn't I just give myself a hug?
Or phone my friends who will make me less lonely.
I could meet them for fun and exciting activities
Or meditate and write to nourish my soul.
Suddenly the hunger within me is gone.
I feel full and the void within me is no more.
