No Pain No Gain

You say “go my love”

 No thanks Honey!

“It is good for you”

But…

“Just give it a try”

“Come-on”

Wait…

“Oh, just give it a shot”

I drag my feet

“One week that’s all I ask”

 

The towel sways over my shoulder

I try lifting

It makes me ache

I try running

It makes me sweat

I try every crazy thing

It makes me pant

 

Never again!

But…

Wait…

I feel happy

I feel energy

I feel fresh

I feel alive

   Thanks Honey!

 

The End
