NAMASTE BITCHES

14 Comments

I made it back

I hit the mat

But in my head are those mean twats

Who say that I should disappear

But I still made it, I’m still here

 

It is as tough as I recall

Some poses I can’t do at all

My muscles ache, my joints they creak

Whilst my demons hiss and speak

 

‘If your old workmates saw you now

They would seriously have a cow!

A teacher, you?!’ they laugh and jeer

‘So much for old ambitions, dear!’

 

And I’m ashamed, I must confess

Poor body, it’s in such a mess

Days, weeks, months, years, gone I know

I didn’t mean to neglect it so.

 

‘Get through this class, then move your ass

Go home and put it in the past

You know you’re not good at committing

Just hit that sofa, stick to knitting’

 

They have a point, I know they’re right

But I won’t go down without a fight

I may be tired and full of fear

But I’m still moving, I’m still here

 

Those years are dead and gone, God knows

As for tomorrow, fuck, who knows

I may just end up staying in bed

And let those bastards fill my head

 

But now, I’m present in the zone

And whilst I may still long for home

I move my ass, lunge, dip and breathe

And let those bastards curse and seethe

 

I’m looser now, I’m feeling lighter

If nothing else I’m still a fighter

So hear this demons, loud and clear

‘Namaste bitches, I’m still here’

  1. Namaste, Sista.

  2. Enjoyed your poem, and am glad you are still a fighter! Go Girl Go! 🙂

  3. Kudos, girl. I know I should, but I don’t. I don’t hear demons in my mind anywhere near as loudly as I do while performing yoga. You rock.

  4. I applaud you for your yoga excursion. Something I have not tried, and I’m not sure I can stretch like that. I enjoy your humor. 🙂

  5. Ah Sista, this was GREAT! Good to see your ironic humor is still alive and kickin’, and in prose form no less!

  6. And a two-fingered salute to the bitches!

  7. DAMN RIGHT, MADAME!! You give what for to every one of those poltergeists, banshees and dybbuks!
