Immerse Yourself

Written by: ilene bauer

The local health club has a sign
Encouraging recruits:
“Immerse yourself” and what it means
Is exercise pursuits.

The concept is a clever one – 
The words sound so enticing.
You delve into a hobby
And immersion is the icing.

But working out is not, for some,
The means for self-improving;
And other ways exist to get one’s
Motivation moving.

For me, the message that the gym
Is trying to disperse
Is one I’ll tweak a bit ‘cause I’ll
Immerse myself in verse!
