Every Day

September 22, 2010
Every day, every day
I say the same things every day, oh every day
I say the same things every day

Point your toes!
Straighten your legs!
Lift that foot
Just a bit higher!
One more minute
Harder now!
Punch that floor
Flip faster, you!
Pump those arms
Shift your hands
Swing your legs
Body tighter!
Stiffer arms
Longer glide
Keep your chin up!
There’s nothing interesting on the floor

Every day, every day
Oh I say the same things every day

G-d I need a lozenge

This is pretty good. Also, I can relate to it because I was a competitve gymnast for a while also. I had to quite though because I hurt myself. Nice job!

Hee Hee. This poem is rather entertaining. I know I take things too seriously, but I took a deeper meaning from this than maybe was intended: that our lives are consumed with daily and somewhat meaningless routines. :( Sorry.

I know; it's just (sigh), I look too deeply into everything. That has made life both hard and enjoyable...

and extremely profound. :)
