Today I came back

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Today I came back after a long time away
To return to the place that started my way,
To a new life, a new bod, a new start
In a new place, a new lease, a new heart.

I bought new pants, I saw myself shrink
But then I got scared--froze--got tight, couldn't think.

Got all caught up in weights, bands and right;
"How do I eat and when, and if at night?

Found I should stop, and find who I am;
What do I like, what do I do, and when?

Found I like biking and feeling the breeze,
and feeling like I am "no more" and at ease.
When out on my bike I am speeding on air
And left of my body and let go of care.

I like to get out and work out a lot.
But how I go about it will have to be right
Without should or buts or ands or ifs but when it's right time.
If I gave a dime for every time I switched courses when tempted,
I would not be rich, but the money would accrue.
I need to know that everything will come due;

When preempted I can't escape time and it can't escape me. I will do as I do, and I won't be exempted from coming to see who I am,
Who is me.
