Change and Exercise

Change is an exercise for the mind..
The alarm keeps going off
The mind keeps snoozing it
And with every snooze it deludes itself.

I am fine the way I look now
I am only doing this because I have issues,
With my self-image.
Perhaps I should just accept that I am here.
After all, changing this will bring its own challenges.
I would have to get new clothes..
And I would have to work harder
To stay where I get after this effort.

I know it will get better, but you never know
It could get worse.
Perhaps it is safer here. I feel peaceful,
On this pillow of contentment.

The sun comes up then, and the contentment
Evaporates like the dew drops at dawn.
Change, is just fitness for the mind.
