ArcheoGator Posted January 15, 2014 Share Posted January 15, 2014 I came across this poem during my first W30. I found it to be important enough to print and place on my bathroom mirror. I actually read it in my head while brushing my teeth. Now that I am going for a W100, I thought I would share this poem here. Part of my road to health is to break the cycle that was passed on to me; a poor relationship with food and rampant obesity. It was anonymously penned: A careful man I want to be â€“a little fellow follows me.I do not dare to go astray,for fear he'll go the self-same way.I cannot once escape his eyes.Whatever he sees me do he tries.Like me he says he's going to be â€“that little chap who follows meâ€¦He knows that I am big and fine â€“And believes in every word of mine.The base in me he must not see â€“that little chap who follows meâ€¦But after all it's easier,that brighter road to climb,With little hands behind me â€“to push me all the time.And I reckon I'm a better manthan what I used to beâ€¦Because I have this lad at homewho thinks the world of me.
