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.
