It's taking over.

Within the last couple years - especially 2017 - society has been going through a fitness revolution. Social media platforms have lately been accelerating a movement for America to get fit. This fitness revolution has its positives and negatives, which is what I have explored through this poem.

There's a revolution happening in society

Trying to make ambitious fitness goals a reality

consumes most minds constantly


Pinterest and Instagram filled with fitness body goals

Learning how to get a flat stomach with no tummy rolls

liking and pinning persistently

Healthy eating habits haunt even the humble

you missed your weight mark so you grumble

the goal is not skinny, it's toned with muscle

your waist better be mini, every day's a hustle

leggings and a sports bra mirror pic aesthetic

the healthy food mood but don't be rude

women lifting weights, men counting macros

carbs, protein, and fat - balance or you're fat!

L.A. lifestyle nationwide - fitness is a crazy ride

ride or die with my gym ladies

ladies looking slim thick on the 'gram

but there's no time so you cram


obesity is left far behind with processed foods

living the fit life is how we do it now

We eat real food and get our exercise in

our health and longevity is the real win

fitness is functional

for a society that needed a revolution

Prose: One Call

What if you had one call, but you could not say anything other than what you were told to say? In this short excerpt, Bethany finds herself at odds with her jailers and with the one she was told to call, the one she loves. What would you do when the conversation takes a turn off script?

With each incessant numbing ring of the phone call, I could feel the betrayal coiling around me like the phone line, squeezing me tighter.
