When I was 12, I was 5'2" and weighed 108.
Through the school years I grew taller
and gained a little more weight.
After school was over, my height remained the same.
Even though I gained more, my weight was okay for my frame.
After my marriage I began to eat more
because depression had set in.
And after I had my babies, it became harder to get thin.
As I got older, I stopped growing up
and started growing out.
Now with all the weight I've gained.
Most people would call me stout.
When I think about my weight, I have to laugh in sport.
I just tell people, I'm not fat
I'm just a foot too short.

heavy gravity
Or you could tell them that our planet has too much gravity.

As a middle-aged man, I can tell you that we get these little spare tires that no amount of diet or exercise will get rid of.

So, cheer up! It's the quality of the time we spend here that's important. Laugh, and even if the whole world's not laughing with you, you can always laugh at them!

Thanks for the great comment and rating...I do have a poem about gravity...I'll have to look it up so I can submit it.. Don't get me wrong ...I love me just the way I am...but I have learned to laugh at the situation...I try to let others know that there is no situation so terrible that we can't find some amusement in it...Even divorce...I know of what I speak...Poetry is how I got over that time in my I have peace...God Bless

Hey Kitty, this poem (accidentally posted in the stories section, I assume) was awesome! The last stanza was great.

I think you could clean up this part a bit:

"Even though I gained more, my weight was okay for my frame.
After my marriage I began to eat more"

It seems like you said "more" too many times, you know what I'm saying? Also, maybe try adding line breaks so each line isn't quite so heavy.

Sorry...I didn't meant to nit-pick format so much, this definitely has promise! =D

Take care.

I'm all for that...You buying?

buying? yeah
sharing? - not a hope, and don't stick your tongue out. What an expression - looks like a vampire cat trapped in a blood bank.

Thanks for the nice comment...You are right ...We should be able to poke fun at and laugh at our situations. It makes them easier to live with.
