I heard someone sarcastically sputter,
"You are what you eat."

But hearing that sole sentence
allowed me to finally understand
why I am
what I am:

Nothing.
Sorry for the stream of darker poetry in the last uploads, I shall try and mix it up more in the future! Still working on multiple pieces, but this is a shorter one that came to mind today, and I liked it enough to upload! FEEDBACK APPRECIATED! :D

Reading this once made my heart sink. Not sink of disappointed, but of sadness of how true this is. This is what is going on now. :) You deserve a favorite!

I felt like I just got hit by a brick wall made solely of melancholia.

(Excuse me for my rather insane subtle unsubtlety, but that was intended to be a compliment of your powerful poetry).

I really like this. If you wanted to make it longer, you could muse about anorexia, bulemia, and their relation to food.

Yeah but the short, rough and suprising ending kind of shocks so much it makes people think about that stuff on their own? At least that's what I think :p

I really like this poem, maybe b/c I really don't like this saying. If all we are is the food we eat, then where is the value of human life?? This little 'mantra' has always frustrated me to no end. I love your poem! I think it calls out the fallacy in it.

Awww thank you so much! Mantras can be quite fantastic, but you are right, the fallacy is that many simplify an idea almost too much!

Whoa this is really sad isn't it. It's very powerful though. A lot of times I like it when writers write shorter things so that they can get a point across more efficiently and I think you did that very well here. Hopefully you do not really feel like this though! Because I can guarantee that you are not nothing

I totally don't care about the fact that this poem is shorter because I feel like it just hit me right in the face (and that's always a good thing). I'd like to see more poems from you in this style :heart:

It's a good thing. You got me to relate with it on an emotional level. That's the best kind of poetry. The kind that you can connect with.
