I woke up this morning
Thought I'd see a brand new me;
When I looked into the mirror
It was NOT what I wanted to see!
Last night I didn't eat
So I could see the scales go down;
And the cream I put on my face
Didn't phase my natural frown.
So I threw my sholders back
Held my stomach in so tight;
Took another look at me
And I said, "Girl! Your're lookin' fine!
After I wrote this poem, I had a chuckle because I thought about my Grandmother Wallace. She was a funny lady. If you complemented my Grandmother Wallace, she would reply, "I know....!" or, "I know I'm beautifull!" And then she would follow up with her laughter......oh the laughter! I loved it! If she had insecurities, she never showed it. She was a strong lady. She did what she had to....no matter if she wanted to or not. Sounds like my mother!.......sounds like me!
........I'm just sayin'!
