Real Food (original poem by Deborah )

Real Food

Cheetos and velveeta how can they be categorized as real food?
How can one see the videos of animal treatment without a change in attitude?
It’s no longer their meat or baby’s milk that we eat, fruits and vegetables are nutritionally better when consumed raw
Society forgets it’s not from their conclusions that we any longer draw
Dying isn’t the bad part if you can live freely and be healthy
Isn’t that more important than becoming only wealthy?
Personally seven years ago under advice from no physician
Because of the side effects in the hidden descriptions I quit taking all prescriptions
Will GMO’s ever come with a real label?
I’m not sure the government is telling us the truth or if they’re able
Once our edibles are heated over certain degrees most if not all vitamins are lost
At night when you’re hurting it’s your inner self that’s paying the cost
Praying or giving grace over dead foods glossed with wax even if one is a Christian
Will not tastefully resurrect it or add any more nutrition
Certified organic is a sign that today I know I can trust
Not Pepsi or coke when it can be used to clean car engines or remove rust
Desserts made from bananas with walnuts as their crust
As I’m salivating seeing the ingredients empty plates are a must
Confined to only carrots or lettuce isn’t true as there are so many dishes
Searching the internet one day I once found a recipe for raw knishes
Remember that food should be our medicine not just to make us thinner
If you’re looking for support go to a meetup in your city even if you’re a beginner
Our end of days will not be spent in hospitals connected to tubes
Think about that the next time your meal comes in a package or in funny shaped cubes
Mercy for Animals are not silently giving animals their voices
In the grocery store and at the table we need to be responsible humans when making our choices
