Pat's Story

I was a practiced puppet in my patients' plastic world

Among those buxom beauties with their coiffures carefully curled


Their limbs were lithe and lipoed, Their lips were lushly lined

But their faces fit the mirror of that fickle fate called time


My mind could see the misery see the secrets still untold

And feel their fortunes fading given up to go for gold


Time was now transcended as my youthful years went by

My eyes were more insightful had I hidden in a lie?


While among the active, ageless could comparing take its toll

And as surgery stripped their layers did it somehow steal my soul?


I had gathered pounds around me protecting me from pain?

Hidden in my scrub suit I'd pretend I looked the same


But then I found the courage to start my life anew

I sighed up for the lap-band with Dr. Marvin's crew

They helped me lose some 80 pounds and pointed out the way

To keeping off the weight I'd lost and face a brand new day...


With love of self abounding with health and vigor now

With praise I salute you and to you I humbly bow


You helped me see the life I'd led and then dared to redefine

To finally start my life anew and quit making masks like mine


This process wasn't easy and at times was awfully hard

But I knew the deck had now been stacked with a STARTING OVER card!

- Pat
