Be Healthy


We used to be

A melting pot

Now some call us

A mixed salad

Where each ingredient

Stands out

But nothing was equal

White privilege

Or lettuce dominated

To be true

And honor

All cultures respectfully

We need a new term

Simply put

In a day

Several meals

Could occur

Mixing balances of ingredients

So we are not one

Jumbled dish

But a balanced diet

Where to be healthy

Eat in moderation

Value the rainbow

Of colors

If you must cook

Process as little as possible

For food is best savored

In its natural state

In other words be yourself.
