Continuous and Persistent

We’ve resolved to get control of food.
A resolve is a good start but just a start.
If we give in to insanity and actions fall short
eventually we resolve again,
lesson learned. We can resolve again
but good intentions fall short.
We can in desperation admit
we’re powerless over food,
our life has become unmanageable.
But unless we understand
what’s unmanageable
is not only food
but our emotions
and spirit as well
keep throwing us back into the food,
the insanity and we can’t
merely kick the can down the road,
we can’t relax at success,
early or late, but we must surrender
continuous and persistent
change in our essence
is the only resolution
we’ll findĀ  gives us peace.
