Resolutions: a New Year's Poem
By Fighting off Frumpy on January 01, 2014
It's now a new year - a fresh start - a clean slate A chance to ditch habits and start being great It's time to improve, so I'm gonna list here All the things I'm resolving to do in this year. I resolve to stop shrieking and lower my tone I resolve to stop playing so much with my phone I resolve to drink water instead of sweet tea I resolve to be selfless: more "you" and less "me" I resolve to eat less and resolve to move more I resolve to keep dirty clothes off of the floor I resolve to shave more than "once in a while" I resolve to return every scowl with a smile I resolve to pinch pennies and save every dime I resolve to arrive everywhere right on time I resolve to take care of my poor, cracking heels I resolve to cook fresh, wholesome, nutritive meals I resolve to stop using pajamas for pants I resolve to remember to water my plants I resolve to be kind I resolve to be thin I resolve to pluck every last hair from my chin I resolve to be patient Resolve to be wise To whittle my waist and slim down my thighs To stop eating sugar To stop drinking wine To grow my own produce To be more refined To always look perfect! To donate to charity! . . .
