A New Love I made


My house.

Unfit I was, high school started.

Scared of words, I suffered

Months of hunger, I chose

Not small enough, I continued.

At a time where anorexia played a factor,

Words from others became a fear.

Despite my shape, I was tired

To be this skinny was not worth it.

At the edge of death, it was time to change.

A goal to get bigger

Determined, time was not a concern.

Eating right, I began my journey

So weak, frustration was near,

I could only keep pushing.

Long months of struggle, a year was here

While others relaxed, I found a way to create stress

To find the smallest gain kept me from fear.

A new love I made,

Now, staying strong for three years

Body building changed my life.
