I feel ever so weak
Struggling to get what I want
Yet not reaching the goal I seek
For a trip to the scale today
Informed me that I was very wrong
And that my body truly began to betray
Me. I thought I was healthy.
Soft yes, but thin enough
But the weight had crept, very stealthy
And now I’m in its clutch
Holding me down despite how
I honestly don’t eat all that much
So frustrated I cry
Knowing tomorrow is another day
For me to passionately try.
