Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Midline Crisis



Oh this war of constant wage
To fight my now expanding gauge,
Game on! For now I’ll call your bluff
To rid myself this extra stuff,

Be gone! My ever increasing girth
That aims to take away my mirth,
No swan would have this muffin top
Did I just hear a button pop?

Come on! This salad has no taste
I’d BETTER get a smaller waist,
For all my trouble, win the prize
I will NOT buy a larger size,

My friends suggest I try to juice
So once again my waistband’s loose,
And when I CAN get in these pants
I’ll do my little happy dance

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.
