Control

Little pieces of myself
scattered on the floor
I've got most of the puzzle
but I lack
the most important
part of all
I have too much heart
too much brain
too much stomach
but no control
I continue to feed my heart
with books
and friends
I fill my brain
with school and
useless random facts
But I spend way too much time
feeding my stomach
somewhere far away
I want to stop
But I'm so hungry
You can stop eating
I'm jealous
Can I borrow your control
just for a while
Just till I lose a few pounds
Then I could stop eating
long enough to
put my puzzle
together
