As life returns to normal, post-COVID infection, I thought it might be an idea to write some longer form poems for the next 30 days, to get me back into the business of routine. Fortunately, Twitter has provided an event for that: #NaPoWriMo, which is part of #NationalPoetryMonth.

#27 is a poem about exercise. A lot of my life is gym-related. It’s a very important lifeline, and I’m very grateful for the strength and mental fortitude it has provided me of the past few years.

Thank you for taking the time to read, and please comment if you like this 😀


Stronger

it is no more
enough, at length
allowing
grasp
of narrative:
instead of
them, allow
yourself
permission
to be
stronger.

within a space
expands to fit
confident
grasp
of musculature:
thin becomes
waste of time
instead,
this girl
can,
stronger.
