My tryst with CrossFit
is too easy to list.
For it takes my arms oh so wriggly
only to turn them into complete jelly.
Legs I believed to be strong and firm
today every step on them makes me squirm.
Bones I surely had some time back
are now for sure broken yet, muscles I still lack.
Sometimes I hang on the bar like a chimp
boasting the strong arms while hiding the constant limp!
Other days I speed up to run like a horse
and the next day its the ice pack I endorse.
Then are the times when I hop like a rabbit
only to make it harder when I get to sit.
Then times are there when I crawl like a croc
trying to nail the plank while my head is still in a lock.
A graceful hyena I have turned out to be
for now I am ever ready to laugh right on me.
Human I might be but CrossFit makes me forget
and zoo is the place as my address I have set.
Shiny blisters have replaced my manicure
yet I show up every morning to endure.
Cause every ache and the broken limb
is refining and teaching me discipline.
And strong I get not physically
but in also my resolve,
Cause here is something I truly love
And has made me evolve.
So here is my tryst with CrossFit
as I know and love, in a gist.
