I Am Stronger Than My Weakness

I am stress

Each day it builds up and never seems,

like it’s going away.

Homework assignment after assignment,

the stress builds like a volcano.


But, it never explodes.

Crossfit, my one escape from everything

I am Crossfit

I find beauty in lifting,

strong muscles,

and doing the unthinkable

Big muscles aren’t just for

guys, girls can be strong too


I am stress

but the release of it comes from a barbell,

a box, a rope, a dumbbell,

a pull up bar, that gives me strength

to become stronger

than my stress

I am stronger than my weakness
