Give Up, Sacrifice, Adopt
A poem for Lent:
I give up chocolate so I don't gain weight.
I abstain from Facebook to stop wasting time.
I banish shopping to lock my money in the bank.
I withhold judgements to keep people happy.
I sacrifice chocolate for the good of my body.
I let go of social media to focus on good works.
I limit spending to save for the future.
I censor what I say to keep my mind pure.
I adopt good nutrition to feel healthy and strong.
I embrace productivity to make my time matter.
I guard my money for a fulfilling future.
I speak only kindness to encourage my peers.
I want to try harder. I want to achieve
A result that drives me to be the best I can be.
But how can I listen to don't, stop, give up, no?
Why can't I say yes, begin, take up, and go?
