TITLE: Tattletale Jeans

I went to put on my jeans one day,
And they were way too tight!
I pulled; and I squeezed; and I almost wheezed.
But, they just didnít feel right.

So, I lay on the bed with very high hopes.
And, I pulled that old zipper apart,
I heaved and I hoed, but it just wouldnít go.
Stubborn thing just broke my heart.

As I went to my drawer, discouragement hit.
When I leafed through it, tears pooled in my eyes.
Oh what a mess! Should I wear a dress?
Then I found jeans just a bigger size.

Next I tried on my cotton blouse,
But the buttons went snap and pop.
My blouse looked a mess to my distress,
Had I time I would go out and shop.

It made me sad; it made me mad,
But I had no one to blame.
I always was chunky and a tad chubby
Now I had to play the dieting game.

I counted calories, ran, and walked.
I prayed and the Lord helped me, too.
I bought new clothes at the local WalMart,
Now Iím feeling all pretty and new!

This is a delightful poem. It painted some vivid pictures for me and I could easily picture myself as the MC. I enjoyed your rhyming and the words flowed effortlessly.

Cute poem, and I loved your title! :) Your rhythm and flow was good throughout. I know many women can empathize with your MC's weight and clothing struggles, and I appreciated the positive ending!
