Weight of these days

Standard

When I was young people said I was too skinny

Now iam older and more sedentary

People make remarks about the fact I’ve put on weight

Bit of a tummy now and bigger all over now what you’d call fat

But the six pack days are well and truly over

But at my age I think I am doing ok

Why are people so concerned about my weight anyway

When I was young I swore I’d live forever

Older now I know each day and year is a blessing

I’d love to get fit once again

But I don’t think that is likely to be happening

Anytime soon so why bother worrying

I won’t get stressed, to the grave I am not hurrying

And that’s what stress ultimately does

Leaves six foot under mud

In a box wondering if stressing was worth it

And of people’s judgement, I don’t deserve it

But I won’t let it get under my skin or ever me.
