Time to scribble my new year resolutions

For the problems, there ought to be solutions.

Topping the list for years is to lose weight

Oh my! For dessert today, we have plum cake!

Sticking to a diet alone just will not do

Exercising daily is my resolution number two.

Roused early morning by a shrill alarm

Such cold and fog might do me great harm!

Resolutions? Me? Do I need to change?

A few extra pounds on me don’t look that strange!

So moving on to resolutions grand and lofty

Thinking hard, I scratch my head softly.

Knowledge, success, money and being awesome,

Elegant and graceful like tiny white blossoms.

Too much on the platter, I really care a damn

As far as I am concerned, I’m perfect the way I am!

“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”

— Brad Paisley

      Hi Swalia, this was a very cute poem. After all you said, "I'm perfect the way I am." So it looks like there'll be no New Year's resolutions, huh? Very nice George Harrison song/video. By the way, what language is that song in?

      Swalia, your poem made me smile. Your second picture defines the New Year resolution perfectly.

      @word55 I don't make any new year resolutions because I am never able to stick to any. The video is in Sanskrit and are the sacred mantras from our ancient scripture Sri Isopnishad.

      Yes, Dear, You're perfect. So why worry? A touch of humour here and here. The video is very soothing.
