Just Do It
Not now, the mind is weeping,
Not now, my body is sleeping.
You can do it in the eve,
Just put on your running shoes and leave.
One day turns into a week or two,
Until I simply don’t know what to do.
There’s a constant battle going on,
Every morning at the break of dawn.
A month goes by, a year,
And I find myself still lying here.
My body is weak, so is my mind,
Time has not been very kind.
If only I had woken up that day,
Put on my running shoes come what may.
Sucked up and stuck to it,
And not allowed myself to quit.
This quote by Muhammad Ali spoke to me because getting disciplined in health and fitness is a constant endeavour as well as a current struggle of mine. Let me know in the comments below what you thought of my simple attempt at poetry. I would appreciate your feedback. 🙂
