What is boredom?

Boredom is a feeling.

But why do we feel it?

What is the point of it?

Everyone feels bored.

But does boredom make everyone else eat constantly too?

Does it create that urge for others?

Why is it there?

Why am I bored?

Why do I eat?

I know why.

Boredom is a disease.

It infects the brain.

It spreads through the veins,

Affects everyone differently.

Some, like me, eat.

Some, like me, lose their good judgement.

Some, like me, act on impulse.


Why do you do this to me?

What have I done to deserve this torment?

Boredom leaves eventually,

But not without leaving scars.

“What if I throw it back up?”

“What if I stop eating? That would help.”

“I need to control myself.”

“It’s all my fault.”

“I need to be punished.”

“I have to slow down, think before I act.”

“Why can’t I be different?”

“I need to change.”

“Who I am isn’t good enough.”

Boredom is a disease.

Even when it leaves,

It’s never truly gone.
