We had to write a poem about any age of our lives, I chose when I lost a bunch of weight when I was 16.
I used to be huge; I was very fat,
I wore baggy clothes as if I was phat.
I listened to lots of really bad rap,
If I met my past self I’d give it a slap.
In the summer of ‘08 I made a change,
My style and size got all rearranged.
The number of pounds I lost totaled 117,
This allowed me to wear much tighter jeans.
My musical preference of rap changed to rock,
To my friends and family this came as a shock.
When I came back to school the beginning of Junior year,
People were amazed that I was no longer shaped like a sphere.
My Nana asked my friends: “Do you like Kyle’s new physique?”
We said yes, because now I don’t look like Monique.
Now I can run without losing my breath,
Now I can run without having to stretch.
Let party time commence, for now I am skinny,,
Ere the party couldn’t start, now it can.
I started to eat lettuce
I heard its words in my dreams
It needed to be silenced.
