You made me bitter of the lazy,

Envious of the active.

My body felt worn by you.

Weak, powerless, exhausted by your weight.


You would have outstayed your welcome

Had I given you the chance,

But you underestimated me;

You did not know my desire for success.


Though the days were dampened

And my friendships stretched,

I refused to let you win.

Mentality prevailed through your physical strain.


I chipped away at the prison walls

You had built around me

Until I could finally see light,

Step out of this fragile shell.
