Growing - Poem by Bonnie Shipman

Never thought about my weight before
Never needed to
Momma says it's not just that
She says it's my blood sugars
She says it's my hormones
She says I have a bad attittude
I guess that's true- all of it
My blood sugars have been pretty high
I couldn't guess about hormones
My attitude...
I haven't kept track

Mom says I have to listen to my body
She says, “Start paying attention.”
I know she is pretty smart
Moms usually are
