I can do this

No I can't

Don't say that word

Over again I chant

I bite my lips

Fidget my hands

Sweat dripping everywhere

From that workout dance

Fear shows up

Not now! I say loudly

No more disappointments

I want to be proud of me

Staring at the enemy

The image of a beast

A taunting monster

One I am desperate to beat

I close my eyes

In search for courage

Philippians 4:13

Pops into my storage

I open my eyes

I no longer see my rival

Just a little weight scale

Awaiting my arrival

I step on it

Hoping for the best

To my surprise 

The scale says yes

I admire myself 

Looking in the mirror

My hard work pays off

I feel superior

This day has come

My appearance and I agree

I have reached my goal

And I love the new me
