This past year...

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

Oh, how fast a year can pass and I know not how far I’ve come
It seems that nothing much has changed or looks like that to some.
But do I think this passing year has brought to me new growth
In my personal physical life... maybe, in my spirit or in both
I came to this page to ponder what will I come up with to write.
Will it be some big revelation or just some simple small insight?

This past year I have seen things change, not so much in my weight
I have worked out hard at Curves this year, perhaps others can relate.
I haven’t really lost the pounds that I’d been hoping to
While working on the Smart machines and all they’ve put me through,
But eating right and healthy, while it seems some times to test
My inner self commitment to a lifestyle that is best.

Even here at Sparkpeople I’ve seen some make such great strides
While others seem to come and go like the ocean with its tides.
But changes in my inner or my outer self I’m not so sure I see
Sometimes I just wonder is there something wrong with me?
I’ve never been good at setting goals or getting from here to there
And when I sit down to write those things, at a blank screen I just stare.

So if you want those kinds of thoughts I’m just not sure I have them
To really express that “This is me!”... to share “This is who I am!”
I’ve read so many other blogs, they seem to have some great perception
With words and sentiments they extol such thoughtful contemplation.
But as for the year that has passed me by with changes I seem to have ignored
I hope that when you read this blog you really weren't too bored.
