Don’t Hold Your Applause

Only now, at almost seventy-eight,

am I getting it. It’s not that I didn’t

have the information before.

I knew exercise and healthy eating

were good for you. Everyone knows that.

But now I’m bone tired.

Energy is what I need:

energy to do what I love,

energy to be there for the people I love,

energy to play and have fun.

Energy is what I don’t have.

Bingo! Lights flashing! 

Energy comes from healthy eating.

Energy comes from exercise.

Connection made! And just in time!

    P.S. Still puzzled that my phone says Friday July 10th 11:25 pm not July 11, 3:19 am as shown on the post above. ???? I guess this is managed from a different time zone.
