Cooking:1 Mental Illness: 0

Taking a day's anxiety

and turning it into a burning desire

by walking into a kitchen

and make a flambe with fire.


Turning a day of self doubt

into an impeccible entree,

finishing with that delicious sauce

over a nice tender filet.


A day filled with anger

can easily be cured

by chopping some fresh garnish

on a wooden cutting board.


A day of sadness

was almost never there

because cooking with passion

makes my worries vanish into thin air.
