'Give Me Chance'

Again I awake with a sore throat and heavy limbs
A system clogged up and complaining
My body is telling me to back off
'Give me a chance' she pleads
Not long ago it could cope with such demands
It was trained to endure
But it has had a break from being challenged
And my enthusiastic decision to summon such requirements again
Has been met with less receptivity than expected
Armed with Vitamin C and a gentle determination
I will persist
A mind has been made up
There are dreams to make real
So with an understanding of what the body will tolerate
I remember my promise of moderation
And I listen with fond regard, accepting what she has to tell me
