Eat To Live

Daily Prompt Source

Live to Eat:  Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?

I choose to eat to live

Rather than live to eat

Nutrition for it to give

Food not to comfort

Or as a celebratory reward

“No” to that is my retort

Food to provide what I need

Nothing more, nothing less

No more eating just for greed

Making it through each day

Without a boredom snack

No nibbles beside me on a tray

To rest easily at night

Without indigestion onset

Making it a horrid plight

Over eating always brings

Food of no nutritional value

Plus the weight gain stings

Swallowing lumps of guilt

Sweet and savoury treats

Filling me up to my hilt

 Posture under weight, slumps

Eating my health away

Heart struggles as it pumps

So I sat my health into decay

Giving up fitness and respect

Slowly losing it all, day by day

So now, I to myself, give

Not to live for the eats

But to simply eat to live
