See what you eat

the words of my mother

long forgotten swayed me

to the world of overweight

everytime standing on a

weighing machine hoping

for a miracle happen

ending up with extra

plus grams and a guilty little  sigh

taking an oath of walking

tomorrow and washing away with a

fall of a rain,

cutout rice in diet

and eat small portions

friends with concern

well tried but ended

up eating mouth watering

snacks in between

exercise you must

order of doctor

what about a treadmill, i

asked husband with eyes

full of hope

why to dry cloths

answer came with sarcasm

can understand his dilemma

after all he is the witness

of my failed up missions

and gained up pounds

in the battle of money and

calories when eating out

calories always won but

ended up with none

meticulously prepared boiled

veggies always bland

but never ever ended

in the gland

dress selected with

lot of care and time

not fit after the

first wear but always kept

in the hope of some reduced inches

piled up in the wardobe

but sure one day

i will succeed after all

what is life without some hope.
