January 01 2012

by Phoebe

I’m lazing around having just had a feed
Full up with all good things I sure didn’t need
My willpower sadly has never been strong
I usually ignore it when it comes along

Been giving some thoughts to this shiny new year
Wond'ring what to keep and wond'ring what to clear
It’s really deciding on where I should start
With everyday issues or those of the heart

And then if the heart is the point to begin
Deciding the strengths of my yan and my yin
Just how much reviewing would be good enough
And how would I know what is left is good stuff

Well, okay, let’s say that I put that aside
Can’t be wasting time, summer's waiting outside
And speaking of summer-before it’s too late
Let’s take a hard look at my physical state

My friends, (lovely people) all tell me I’m fine
Well that’s what they say but my mirror ain’t blind
To be really honest I’ve had a good life
Lived straight up the middle, avoided all strife

Ok, so the waist isn’t tiny no more
And 30 year old dudes don't come knock on my door
Well even if by some chance they actually did.
What ever would I do with a 30 year old kid?

Well never mind that better things here to do
The out with the old and the in with the new
Think I’m physically ok, emotionally too
And really there’s nothing immediately to do

So reading this back, think it could get quite deep.
Let’s leave it for now, (yawn), I’m off for a sleep.
