An endless quest for perfection
My desired weight to achieve
Just to be a little bit thinner
Then content I would be
O! To lose "a pound here, a pound there"
What Joy then I’ll have,
To reach my perceive idea weight
Will be a dream fulfilled
Little wonder then, my dream at last I see
But only to think! "Alas I’m still too fat"….
What good then is my quest?
If am still not content?
A pound here a pound there
Surely, an obsessed desire.
And if truth be told
I need a little bit of help
Not of pain
But of life’s "sweet delights"!
