And they were way too tight!
I pulled; and I squeezed; and I almost wheezed.
But, they just didn’t 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 wouldn’t 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 I’m feeling all pretty and new!
