poetry, writing


Poor lighting and a bad camera angle

Revealed her significant slide.

Puffy cheeks, rounded shoulders,

Why does she look so wide?

Dark circles added in, tousled hair too;

What is going on to make her look so rough?

She battles with this from time to time,

Even when life isn’t all that tough.

Pouring herself out of the bed,

Feeling like a humongous blob,

She beats herself up when she gets this way,

Thinking everyone else sees a slob.

So, out come the workout clothes,

At least this year they aren’t tight yet,

And her kicks wait by the door,

Ready for a stroll at sunrise or sunset.

Motivation may be hard to find,

But it’s time to nourish the body and mind.
