What Makes You Stronger

Just a simple thing to choose, more than weight that one could lose. Life on the line, not only that, Almost dead underneath the fat. 'Twas appropriate to slim her down, If she wished to stay around, Never a better day to start, to have a happier healthy heart. Food was never the enemy, But depression, loss, and poverty. Hopelessness makes it hard to eat, Fruit or salad than chips and treat. Hardship also lends a hand, to the jobless, homeless, desperate man. And the comfort of a honeybun, No one could only have just one. But now a lifeline is ultimately thrown, You could not do it on your own, You find yourself now staring at, All the crap that made you fat. Now you're a survivor regardless to The measure taken to rescue you, You'll now live out these words much longer. What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.
