The Face of Allergies


POETIC RANT  | The fight for allergy-free foods

This is the face 
Of what so-called food can do

A mild reaction
Breath still in action

Allergens the trigger
No warning, no sticker

Producers fucking with food 
Untold processes skewed

Numbers with no names
GMO games

What is our food eating?

Feed grown in soils or sands
Laced with chemical strands

Grass or glyphosate 
Is it too late? 

Rage rises in me

Driving me to ask more
Who is this food safe for? 

Resistance still there

Do I run and hide 
Or chase the rollercoaster ride

Grow our own
Together or alone

What will become
For the food in our tums?


Rollercoaster ride initiated. 

One conversation at a time.

Fighting for Allergy-Free Food


Thanks for reading

Thanks for being you 


Please shout out in the comments or via allergyangst@gmail.com if you have a story you would like to share about allergies.
I would love to add them to the publication on Medium — Allergy Angst or reblog here on WordPress.

The power of sharing your story is what is driving me— so — 
NO writing or grammar police here. 
My sole wish is to read and learn.

Disclaimer — I have only the bare basics on how to run a publication and wordpress blog for that matter — but certain I will find my feet along the way.
