Fat invasion

autumn

I was never over-weight.
Always on the skinny side.
Lanky and awkward growing up.
No fat padded my behind.

Now I have a weight issue.
The spare tyre has evolved.
Fat has invaded my body.
It crept up without me knowing.

Never had I to watch what I ate.
Whatever I ate never got stored.
Was that just a dream?
I cannot find my willpower.

My body is not burning off fat.
I am sluggish, short of breath.
More and more fat is stored.
A waist of 28 to a 36.

This fat invasion I hate.
From free size off the rack,
to searching for plus size.
Daggers at extra small ones.

Some say I am still lucky.
My weight is not obese yet.
Maybe so but I feel tired.
Lugging this extra luggage.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
