A Pantoum: My Food Journey

A Pantoum

 

Once upon a time…

I ate when I was hungry, and I ate what I was hungry for.

Food was not classified as good or bad;

And eating was never a source of fear or anxiety.

 

I ate when I was hungry and I ate what I was hungry for.

Stringent rules about eating did not exist,

And eating was never a source of fear or anxiety.

Calories were not part of the equation.

 

Stringent rules about eating did not exist.

Every waking hour was not focused on food.

Calories were not part of the equation.

Food was associated with the people I loved.

  

Every waking hour was not focused on food,

Nor was it categorized as good or bad.

Food was associated with the people I loved.

Once upon a time…
