She is of good cheer
Indeed it is finally here
The long awaited New Year
Casting down all her fear

She has a resolution to meet
Up she rises from her seat
This she definitely must beat
There will be no more defeat

Without a doubt life is not fair
But for victory she ought to prepare
This time she will not despair
A soldier engages in warfare

Despite her wages remaining the same
There is no one to blame
Her position she must claim
Creating new rules of the game
She gets set to aim

She has made a decision
Unwavering with precision
She sees herself in a vision
And needs no revision

She won’t retreat
Making these ends meet
Will be her impressive feat
No more cold feet

Living within her means
On determination she leans
Thank God for rice and beans
With that she can fit in her jeans

I don't often comment on poems, but I like your humor in this one.

Easy to read. Thanks for sharing.

This made me smile!
Although you did well with the rhyming, it seems rather forced at times. The rhythm of the lines could be smoother.
I liked the analogy of the battle... so true!

I love the rhymes and humor in this, especially about the rice and beans enabling our heroine to fit into her jeans. Ha ha! Thanks so much for sharing.

Cute, but seriously a great resource for a lifelong approach to this issue is Trim Healthy Mama, written by 2 sisters who have tried everything and discovered how the science of food can greatly improve your health and decrease your waste line. Google or search on facebook
