Snacks

Isn’t it funny how
You get all wound down,
Your teeth are clean,
You’re snuggled into your bed
Reading a book,
Or watching a movie,
Or crocheting,
Or writing a novel,
Whatever –
And suddenly –
Your stomach grumbles
And you realize
You really kind of want a snack.
It is in that moment
You need to realize what you value.
Your immediate coziness and comfort
Or a full belly when you fall asleep?
A choice must be made.
