It Is As If I Want Something To Eat And Drink/That Does Not Exist - Poem by Shalom Freedman

It is as if I want something to eat and drink
That does not exist
Is it chocolate?
Is it bread?
Whatever I eat now
Does not satisfy
I am hungry one second afterwards
I want a food that does not exist
I know the hunger is anxiety
I know it is the worry
The troubled situation
The health situation
The political situation
I know it is not just food
But I soon will have yet another coffee
And perhaps a tenth apple of the day
And still be hungry
And go to bed hungry
And tell myself again
I must show self- control
But I am hungry

Topic(s) of this poem: anxiety, food, hunger

    Every person must show self control during different political and health situation. An amazing sharing is done really. (Report)Reply
