The Non-Resolver

I’ve been watching my weight since 14, but with all of the diets I’ve seen, they’ve become a big no-no. This here dieting yo-yo has stopped trying to be super lean! Other problems I’ll change as I go. I don’t need a New Year to say so! Said a wise sailor man: I yam what I yam! Why improve on a good thing - ya know? So the cause of the most bellyaching at this time of the year I’m forsaking. When you know yourself well. . . why then go through such hell! Resolutions I’ll never be making. For the the New Year's Resolution Poetry Contest of Regina Riddle

    I guess the theme for this years resolutions was to not make any. Great poem by the way.

    Congrats on your winning work..Yes, it is better to make up one's mind to do anything than to make a resolution..If one makes up their mind, they will stick to whatever they plan to do..Sara
