I squandered my health
on pleasures of the flesh.
Iím a junk food junkie,
I practically mainline mayonnaise.
Doughnuts are my downfall,
I freely admit.
As do I about being passive aggressive.
I know each decadent dessert I devoure
is one foot closer to the grave,
just like them coffin nails I smoked.
But I went and did it anyway
just to satisfy my lust of the moment.
Too much collateral damage.
I could stroke out at any time.
So sometimes I wonder if
Iím not some sort of suicidal
in a passive aggressive kind a way.
No question Iíve been killing myself.
It is not like I canít eat right and exercise.
Iíve been there, done that.
Problem is, I need to live there.
It donít take much to make me
fall off the wagon.
I eat when Iím worried,
but not when Iím too upset.
Boredom is the worst,
pain a close second.
But I know most all of that
I can just walk off
when  Iím already in shape.
I really let myself go
when my husband got cancer.
Talk about fluffy!
Super soft in some places
that like to sag and dimple.
I donít buy clothes,
I buy camouflage.
So wagons ho!
Here I go,
trying to get healthy again.
Darn my flesh, its weak as sin.
