Wrestling With Life

When I joined I felt so weak

Looking at myself made me reek

I was so fat

I couldn't get up when I sat

It was so hard in the beginning that I almost quit

I knew if I stopped I would't get fit

I was fighting with my inner thoughts

Being confident was what I sought

Eventually it got easy

When I saw myself in the mirror,

I didn't feel so queasy

3 years went by

Time sure does fly

It was hardwork

But it has its perks

At first I didn't think it was for me

But now I clearly see

Wrestling changed my life

It made me feel suffice

Get out of your comfort zone

You will feel better in your bones
