The sound of my stomach and the food not coating my lips is the only thing I can think of as I scroll, click and type through this computerized chemistry test
My churning stomach can’t determine what number should be placed as the coefficient to balance this chemical equation
Did anyone hear the hunger sound alarm that just went off inside of me?
Sweat begins to trickle down my forehead
Suppressing the onset of embarrassment begins to feel like a new goal instead of anticipating the end of this exam
My aching esophagus can’t decide whether or not if I should choose A or C as one of my multiple choice answers
But the only thing I dream of deciding for is whether to put country crock butter or strawberry flavored cream cheese on a raisin cinnamon toast bagel
Or….if my taste buds would prefer the iconic salt & pepper duo over a few shakes of lemon pepper on some fried eggs, just to soothe the sounds of emptiness that flare up my adrenal strikes
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but hunger isn’t limited to morning, noon, or night
Especially for me, when the hunger I endure each day continues the fight
Pain or Focus?
Hunger or Success?
