This food is an addiction.

I’ve recently stopped eating meat
I couldn’t resist
the urge to cry
thinking of the world and why
we aren’t apex predators
we use machines and technologies as a lure
we farm
as a child it never set off an alarm
the cruelty of childhood folklore
that I used to smile and adore
as the pigs are bred to be slaughtered
the plants fertilized and watered
is any of our food edible
some days I slip up
this food is an addiction
with all the artificial additives
I’m not even an animal lover
I just believe in the health of a flower
at its natural state
without the additives of late
and the others have to go
As I try to retrain my taste.

Thanks for reading.
