Fit me with a book

I’m not making excuses, I admit freely

That the hardest thing in the world for me

Is to exercise, increase my physical activity

Because I seem to have an inherent proclivity

To be a couch potato, curl up with a book

To sit or lie down, I can always find a nook

I can easily exercise my eyes and my brain

But physical exercise just seems to cause pain…


I also admit that I take care of hearts

And in doing so, one has to start

With healthy diet and regular exercise

So if I don’t follow my own advice

It seems like a dishonest thing to do

Motivating me to make different choices too..


To counteract the pain of exercise I require

Something that I more keenly desire

Therefore as I get my creaky joints in motion

I read simultaneously, for a dose of my magic potion

The more engrossed I am in my book, the less

Physical discomfort I perceive, greater is my progress

If I don’t exercise, it is reading that I actually miss

Exercise may release endorphins, but books give me bliss..


At the end of the day, to summarize

Reading helps me in all forms of exercise

To keep myself fit in every way indeed

Outstanding books are what I need
