A poem

Friday, January 09, 2015

I forgot I wrote this some time ago until I "found" it again today.
I locked away the thinner me

I locked away the thinner me
So many years ago
I forgot how I used to be
It became the status quo

I put all others before myself
And became the jolly fat man
My health sat on a shelf
With no future in the plan

But then I awoke
And realized something dear
My life had become a joke
And nothing was ever clear

I locked away the thinner me
So many years ago
However now I found the key
And built within my inner glow

I am a strong and better man
This person going forward
Each day I say I can
I am strong and heading toward

The better me, the one inside
The thin man that I am
I have a determined stride
And no longer do condemn

I locked away the thinner me
So many years ago
And now I am beginning to see
How good I look and feel and go

This healthy lifestyle is my life
And nothing will change me now
I know it’s not easy and has strife
But I have power and I have the vow

To be that thinner me
No longer locked away
I love my life and make the decree
Now I shout and say

Onwards to be free!
