When To Throw The Towel In

And Call It Quits...

Don't believe a word I say

I really mean time to get another towel

This one is wet and has been through the ringer many times

You have seen it sqished in with others only to be spun

It looks like it has got the crap nocked out of it (pardon my French)

But surprise, surprise, surprise !!!!

Your back for another round

To be fluffed up and dried and then folded neatly

So next time you can do it all again

Am I talking about towels

Maybe

Maybe I am talking about people and we should learn from the towels that we own

We display them nicely in our homes because we are proud and want to impress and try forget where they came from a short time before

A wet pile of soft cotton that has served its purpose and smells a little too

But hours later smelling fresh like you know who ?

So soft to the touch and I just can't get enough

I want to get you close to my body as close as you can

I want to rub you all over

Your hypnotic

You are definitely a wonder drug

I can't drink you

I can't eat you

You refresh my body from head to toe

You are not just like comfort food that fills my belly for the moment

or when I need you the most

You are used all the time and each time give so much more than most

You have never let me down

After all those thousands of times going round after round

Like the best fighters in the ring

Now there is no justice because when I am finally ragged and worn

At a closer look I might be slightly torn

You expect me to do more

When other people would of quit long ago and never looked back

I will never give up on you

I use you outside for other projects

Like washing my car I cherish so much

To give the shine that noone can take away or until the rain falls and muddy's the streets

Then I still come through with flying colors even though mine are faded now and I have lost all my pizzaz

I am a true blue friend here till the end

I have pampered you dry after all the messes you have been in

All I ask is for you to give me one final wrap around your skin

I like this witty poem, especially:

"Now there is no justice because when I am finally ragged and worn

At a closer look I might be slightly torn

You expect me to do more"

Darlene Sabella Keep at it.Never give up.Push on.I am right behind you.Kirutaye There is no end to what we can do when we put our minds to it.When we feel at our lowest point that might well be our shining star.Only lots of effort and time will tell.Thank you both so much.

And a robe that feels like a wonderful towel is the icing on the cake!

I thoroughly enjoyed that cute poem DREAM ON :)

Btw, I have one of those thick terry cloth robes which I received as a gift one year and I just love it after a shower.
