Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


08 March 2014


I don’t eat well, or often,

but this body sure has softened.


It used to be all fit and firm,

but we’re no longer on good terms.


I have excuses, ‘though none make sense,

I’m blind, but not to laziness.


I used to bike five miles a day,

stayed active in so many ways.


Losing my sight has been depressing,

I’ve given up, or so I’m guessing.


Perhaps it’s time to set some goals,

find my way back to being whole.


I should have done this New Year’s Eve,

better late than never, I believe.


Gonna be some changes in what I do,

find myself, or choose someone new.


I’m taking back control again,

it’s not too late to start a trend.
