Nothing Happens In Thirty Days
We read of this and that:
Small miracles that eat your fat,
Correct and beautify
An anything you were supplied with or without --
And want to change.
To preempt and skip some steps,
Exempt from being disregarded,
By a world around you:
World that means so much to you.
Thirty days of effort and voilá you’re through.
Tantalizing too, to
Learn an instrument,
Build a muscle,
Speak a language:
Goodness know what else
That leads to name and fame.
To being loved.
A brainless wooing;
Headlines wrong or undeserved -
Rumor more tumorous humor;
Twelve day offers to build up your nerve,
Swerving long from real life.
Peace in our minds,
Contentment in acceptance
Takes a lot more than a month of days.
Self-help is a long-term pact,
No guarantee of long-term fact.
There is no exercise that magnetizes,
Ducks or dodges change and death.
So save your breath --
and keep on going.
