Some may think that I’ve got an
Inflated view when I
Take a look at myself and
Admit my strength is high

But don’t mistake me for someone
Who’s perfect in all ways
Off the road of discipline
This poet sometimes strays

The difference between warriors
Who grant themselves a “cheat”
And people with no self-control
Is that we don’t mistreat

Our bodies by abusing them
Without the thought of what
The repercussions will do and
Not let that door be shut

When you make the wrong choice for
Your health, you must accept
What you have to do in order
For it to be kept

If you have an extra large
Order of fries for lunch
You better make some time tonight
And a few sit-ups crunch

If you smoke, you should just quit
But if you lack the will
At least look in to Mullein Tea
So that your lungs don’t fill

With all the garbage that your cig
Pumps in to turn them black
Exercise and fresh air too
Will save you from the hack

And if your vice is that too often
You procrastinate
You better cancel some events
To keep your schedule straight

You don’t get to waste your time
And not get your work done
But still go out to parties with
Your cohorts and have fun

Repercussions tell you to
Pick up the phone and say
“Sorry, I can’t make it ’cause
I dragged my ass all day”

Repercussions whisper in
Your ear when you ignite
A cigarette by telling you
About your lung’s black plight

And they grab you by the gut
When you’ve had too much food
Reminding you how much more time
On treadmill you’ve accrued

I’m not perfect, never was
Today I stuffed my face
Twice as much food than I needed
So now to erase

The extra calories that I
Don’t need to do my grind
I’ll amp up my workout tonight
And kick my own behind

I’ll pass on having something good
For dinner like a steak
And definitely no dessert
Like ice cream, pie or cake

When repercussions make my meal
It’s salad every time
If you cannot pay the price
Then don’t commit the crime



Speak up, fellow Warrior!
