Forcing Poetry

So I’m in a funk, to be honest. I have my writing back, and it’s just on me to finish up, but I don’t care. I don’t get why. I put everything into the gym currently. I think tomorrow I’ll print it out and edit the old fashion way. Maybe that will get me going.

Tomorrow my article is due for Legends. One of these days I’ll write it the day before, but this is not that day. I will hopefully have some time tomorrow before the gym (otherwise I’ll just be at the gym late).

However, I thought I’d write something. I’m feeling a well of angst build up, so what better than to spew some poetry upon the page, vomiting the ill emotions to free me of their gut rot. So here goes.

Theme: #1 Introduction

Cards: process, single (Are you kidding me?! Seriously universe?! Eh, it’s starting to lose the sting, but I’m in a dramatic mood.), instantaneous, reveal, haggle.

Who Am I?

Three months and the process continues.
My arms are defined.
My legs are chiseled.
My gut looks the same,
But the belt fits tighter.

I am single, though not by my design.
I loved with all I had.
I was dropped like heavy weights.
Though I search, I wonder
What for? I’m redefined.

I will be a Tough Mudder in five months.
An instantaneous decision
Has led me down a hole of
Working out, self improvement,
And eventually taking ten thousand volts.

With this I reveal myself to my hopefully
Merciful audience. I beg
You see me in pleasant
Light, and should you not,
I shall haggle for your kindness.

  1. 1 Corinthians 9:24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

    Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
    I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

    • So work on my cardio. Got it 😉 Thanks for the verses, Len. Means a lot and very insightful. It’s amazing how hard it is to fully embrace God’s wisdom.

Fun, fantastical escapes
