Junk Food

What unhealthy choices do we grapple with?

I got hooked on junk food from my early youth.
Poor taste in food!
My mother, she tried to tell me,
“You’ll do yourself damage
Choosing to go for junk food.”
But I was drawn in
By the excitement or ‘comfortableness’
Of junk food.

I got hooked on junk food from my early youth.
I realize now I’ve got
To see better and choose better.
My head, it tries to tell me,
“One day you’ll be forty or fifty
And have regrets.
So, don’t keep falling
For the deceptive beauty or wittiness
Of junk food.”
