Let's Get to it!

Thu, 06/05/2014 - 11:15 -- ANG2015


It's been days when you've been just sitting there relaxing

Relaxing like you don't feel those contractions

It's been years since you felt satisfation

It's time for a change, put in action!

First,you have to build up that confidence

Those fatty foods, sugary drinks, you must put a stop to it

Second, you have to realize you deserve a chance

A chance at life, a chance at love, a chance at chance

The next step is getting up

You have to pace yourself

Move your body, even race yourself

That's when you'll feel elated

You're more surprised than anyone that you could make it

You're blessed at the steps that you have taken

And now it's time for the standing ovation!


Guide that inspired this poem: 



This poem was inspired by the way I was feeling last year before I decided that I needed to get back into shape. I'd gained so much weight that I couldn't fit anything. I hated going out with friends. I hated the way I looked. Life just sucked, but I lost over 25 lbs, and I feel amazing. I just wanted to inspire others that feel the same way I felt.
