After Listening To A Friend - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

okey, i got a basketball
for a tummy
and you advise that i
take the exercises
you tell me: stretches
ball, abs, i have to do
abs in 20-repetitions
regularly everyday
got to eat less carbs
more fresh veggies
more fruits to detox
my ugly body
avoid stress take yoga
chant and have my
private peace
gym must be regular
must have discipline
no smoking and
strictly no alcohol

oh, it took me
ten years to earn this
shapely tummy
took care of it
put more fat and
had more sleep than
there were more
expensive pizza and
burgers and cakes
in there

had put more investments
deposited money in there
let me think if i have to remove
it, but if yes, definitely,
not just in a day, a week,
or month, can't promise

i love myself, and my
appearance sadly does not
matter, but i may change
if i don't die earlier than
the time frame that God
gives to hopeless men.
