With my health
it’s always two steps forward
and three steps back.
Trying to get fit
is an uphill battle-
one I am woefully unprepared for.
Eating healthy-
an expensive
and confusing endeavour.
my mind seems easier to hone.
The results are readily available.
Just like with emotions,
the payoff is immediate.
It doesn’t feel
like such a fruitless struggle.
While my mental
and emotional health thrive,
my body could use some work.
Trouble is,
trying to be fit
has always been two steps forward,
and three steps back.

Prompt: Health
