5:00 am my alarms goes off

 

I open my eyes eager to hit snooze

It gives me 5 more minutes

I look to my side and it is dark

My mind tells me to go back to sleep

 

Everyone is sleeping

It is too cold outside

 

I begin to remind myself

Why I wake up at 5

 

I pick myself up from bed

Ignoring the voices that tell me

You are wasting your time

You will not make it

 

My vision shuts the voices of uncertainty

I remember what I am fighting for

 

I take my pre-workout

 

Head outside

Turn the car on

And drive

 

Go in the gym

To get my morning workout done.

    Dear Luis,
    I really like your poem because it represents me trying to get up for school.

    Dear Luis,

    I am surprised that you are addicted to the gym. It is something good to be active and get your workout done. Also that you are able to wake up at 5 in the morning, that is really hard for many people to do, and it shows your dedication to working about. One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is, “I pick myself up from bed Ignoring the voices that tell me You are wasting your time You will not make it My vision shuts the voices of uncertainty I remember what I am fighting for.” This whole part of your poem really shows that you are dedicated to working out and that you are sure what you are doing it for. It is good that you are able to shut the voices telling you that it will not help you and instead put that work in to get what you want. Another sentence that I liked was, “My mind tells me to go back to sleep Everyone is sleeping It is too cold outside I begin to remind myself Why I wake up at 5.” It is good that you constantly remind yourself of what your goals are and that you are able to completely wake up when you hit the snooze button. You are able to get up and get ready to go to the gym and get your workout. I agree with you that everyone should have a good addiction, like working out, that is something really good for you. Everyone should have something positive in their lives.

    Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you have really positive thoughts and maybe your next post will help more people.

    Dear Luis,
    I like how you motivate yourself everyday to continue going to the gym every morning even when you feel like you don’t want to, you persevere. Most people would give up but that is really good that you go so early in the morning.

    Dear Luis,
    gym life, It’s very good to stay fit you’ll be getting a lot of compliments. All of that takes hard work and dedication first. I like the lines “Ignore the voices that tell me you are wasting your time” It must be hard to actually ignore them because one you do you pretty much gave up. Keep striving to become buff Luis.

    Hey Luis, I like your poem and your dedication to workout daily and every morning. It’s a good habit to maintain and will help you live longer. There are many positive effects for working out such as boosting your happiness level, improving energy, and sleeping better. I found an article that talks more about the benefits of exercise that you may be interested in (https://draxe.com/benefits-of-exercise/). Anyways look forward to see what you write next, have a good day.

    Dear Luis
    I was surprised because you wake up at 5 in the morning. I’m still sleeping at that time. Now I see why you always talk about the gym because you are addicted as hell.
