“I need to get healthy”
I hear my friends say
To loose some weight
I see them pray.
Depriving themselves, from food all day
Going to great length, to keep hunger at bay
Diets, pills, and spinning they try
Repeated failure at times makes them cry
Seeing them start over, week after week
I can’t help but ask: “What is it you seek?
Accreditation through the eyes of a guy?
Maybe happiness, you can’t seem to buy?”
“Putting weight on, I can’t seem to quit”
“You’re on endless diets, it’s like they’re asking for it!”
Sometimes I wonder, why won’t they see
That letting go of it all will help them break free.
