Thoughts While Exercising In The Morning

This morning
I couldn’t quite
Get out of bed
But I did
And exercised
For thirty-something minutes

You might say
That it’s encouraging
That soon I’ll be
Productive
And alive
Again

Don’t bother
I spent thirty-something minutes
Thinking only of
What I do not enjoy
How I used to have
An energy
And drive
And used to see a point
In still being alive.

This morning
As I did the healthy thing
And tried to make myself look thin again
I almost could have cried
Because I realised
I enjoy
Hardly anything
It’s all just passing time
And I’ll get thin again
And I’ll look good
And what good will it be?

I’ll start to count the days
Maybe that will make me feel okay.

Failed musician. Trying to write for TV. Never sure quite where I'm headed. Serial un-funnyman. I used to do a lot of writing. Sometimes I still do. So I decided to put it on the internet. I'm on Facebook and Twitter. Pretty active on the former, not so much on the latter. Holler at me.
