a part of me apparently wants to quit

it is a struggle lately,

to get fit,

a part of me apparently,

wants to quit.

it is a struggle lately,

to get up,

a part of me apparently,

wants to just give up.

it is a struggle lately,

to eat right,

a part of me apparently,

wants to eat whatever is in sight.

it is a struggle lately,

from within,

a part of me apparently,

no longer wants to be fit or thin.

it is a struggle lately,

but i am fighting it in every way,

because a part of me apparently,

wants to win this battle (yet again),

in the very worst way!

it is a struggle lately,

but i am fighting it with every bite,

because a part of me apparently,

will not give up without a fight.

it is a struggle lately,

but i am worth the fight,

because a part of me apparently,

has been keeping me up at night.

remembering the frustrations, heartache and defeat,

remembering the 'how could i do this,...again?" and feel so depleted.

remembering the struggles, the battles,

remembering the feeling of no clothes that fit,

because a part of me apparently,

just

won't 

quit!

 

what was it?

i don't care.

 

why was it?

i don't know.

 

the only thing that matters now,

 

is that i am

on

my

way

back

'home'.

That was truly beautiful! A poem's purpose is to say something meaningful, and this one did so perfectly.
