The Grumbles of a Hungry Woman

I wasn't feeling very inspired today, but I was feeling hungry. So for Day 10 of National Poetry Month I wrote about how frustrated I am by my diet.

The Grumbles of a Hungry Woman
By Candace Shultz

I want to eat a lot today
Instead of feeling hungry all day.
1200 calories isn't enough.
A prolonged diet is too tough.
I don't want to exercise anymore.
It just makes my body very sore.
Checking my weight makes me mad.
Weeks without progress make me sad.
These last ten pounds are clinging tight.
I'm ready to give up the fight.
I don't want to hop, hop, hop.
I just want to stop, stop stop!
And eat some chocolate.
