I Forget It Can Bring a Smile!
Midway through workout at ten minutes time,
Limbs move in clumsy odd style.
But just a few more, endorphins arise,
I’ll remember why it brings a smile.
Veins whoosh fast at heart pumping rate,
Feeling better after just a short while.
Exercise done and moving is over,
I forgot it could bring such a smile.
Clammy hot skin now wet with sting,
Salty drops hit the living room tile.
Breathing so deep as pain quiets down,
I feel how it makes me smile!
Amazingly better after moving just a bit,
An idea so tough to reconcile!
Pain just makes me want to stay still,
Because, I forget it can bring a smile!
