It's a new experience for little old me,
water dripping down my neck and back.
Oh, it's just sweat from exercising,
fast walks in the morning plus the 75 degree heat
at 6 AM as summer holds on tenaciously.
How often do we really push ourselves
enough to actually sweat? "Not often" is
my answer, but trying to walk quickly
with a friend has me perspiring profusely
compared to my slower drier walks alone.
Then there's life, how often do we really exert
ourselves and push our limits to do more,
be better, rise higher or try harder?
"Not often" is my answer. It's time to sweat more,
and learn to excel before I really expire.
