An Ode to New Year Resolutions and the Magnificent William Shakespeare. May he not come back to haunt me for this.

 

 

 

 

 

Me to self:
O OVER Weight, O OVER Weight, wherefore art I OVER Weight?
Deny me doughnuts and refuse me fudge;
Or if thou wilt not, be but worn by me
And I'll no longer care to control thee

Self right back at me:
[Aloud] Shall forsake I, or shall I DO SOMETHING?!

Me to self:
'Tis but myself that is mine enemy:
Weight art my ally, although I am not
What's Weight? It is nor evil nor decent
Nor fat, nor fitting into skinny jeans
Nor belonging to a fad. O be gone stigma!  
What's in a word? That which we say alone
With any other word can redefine;
So Weight would, were it not OVER Weight call'd or thought, 
Retain that dear dignity which it’s due
Without disgrace. Mine ally or enemy,  
and only I choose, which will take myself,
Take all myself.

Self right back at me:
[Aloud] Shall forsake I, or shall I DO SOMETHING?!

 

Based on William Shakespeare’s words and meter found at http://www.enotes.com/shakespeare-quotes/o-romeo-romeo-wherefore-art-thou-romeo
