Getting in shape

My Therapist Said

Liliana Kohann

My therapist said

that in order for me to grow,

I must get to the bottom of my addiction,

and that’s the only way to go.


He said it may take up to a year

butI didn’t want to wait.

Once I got home I right away started,

and boy, didn’t I do great!


First I got to the bottom,

than to the middle of it,

then cleared stuff from up there.

What a great job I did!


Surely not a year, not even a day,

and I’m already at the top!

And I am really proud to say,

                 I grew!  A lot!

This and many other poems with whimsical illustrations can be found in Liliana's book A Thin Book of Fat Poems: 50 Inspirational Poems for 'Aha' Moments.
