Today I made a stand

#1
With the sun still rising, in the East.
I awake again, this bloated beast,
I roll myself upright with a groan,
I hear my bedsprings creak and moan

Each stair upon my case does creak,
As I make my way downstairs to eat,
I pass the mirror in my hall,
And at myself I am appalled

Yet sitting at my dinner table,
I feel as though I am not able,
To stop myself, even with praying,
From eating this food, which I am inhaling

Alas, another day as fat,
Big ol’ Pete, that chubby chap,
Who sits in front of his PC,
Day after day, eating biscuits and tea

I wonder why this happened to me?
Did I do something inappropriately,
In a past life, a mild transgression,
Payment for which is this depression?

The sun’s now setting in the West,
And once again I do my best,
To make it home another day,
Without showing off the pit-stained grey
That is my shirt, from only sitting
On the 22, still it seems fitting,
That my numbered bus on which I ride,
Is almost that which I can’t hide,
A weight which overshadows life,
And bring me nothing but pain and strife

But something changed, I don’t know how
But I finally have the courage now,
To face myself for the first true time,
Admit my problem, get it in line

With the help of friends and great support,
From the online forum of the minimins sort,
I’ll finally be able to set free,
The man who lives inside of me

Fat Yesterday may have come and gone,
But nothing there is worth dwelling on,
Today I made my first big stand,
To get my weight back in my hands
And when enough “Todays” have past,
I’ll look forward to tomorrow at last,
And finally look at the “yesterdays”,
And smile, leaving them behind with a wave

Use the oodles of creative energy you obviously have into your journey and you'll be surprised how far you can go!

Great poem

This is brill..!!! i love it..! well done..

Do you write a lot of creative stuff?
Yeah, mostly I write songs with my guitar, but I also enjoy sketching (mostly animals) and the odd spat of poetry as well.
I seem to having a rhyming mind, poems and songs come to me all the time!


EDIT: Just realised that even that last line in my post rhymed! lol!

That's brilliant Pete :clap:

Particularly like this bit

But something changed, I don’t know how
But I finally have the courage now,

That's how it feels isn't it. Something changes. Some lightbulb goes off.
