Working Out

lifting weights
I worked out at the gym today
with many others who like to play
with weights and complicated machines
all trying to follow their dreams
of losing weight and looking sharp
as they huff and puff walking endless miles
on machines of various and different styles
some for walking or running fast
others for sitting and pedaling around
with the same purpose of calories to burn
or to raise the heart rate and make it sound
there are some who are here with a friend
pushing each other to the end
or companionship as they make the rounds
helping each other to better heights
others like me, work alone
all of us living within our zone
of comfort as we make the rounds
with a nod and a smile to each other to say
“Glad to see you back today”.
