Overweight

Detoxing
from the unfruitful knowledge
I devoured with passion
from the libraries of the world
and consumed unwillingly
from my family 
and friends, 
school educators, 
religious preachers 
and some random men.

Burning 
the fat of the world 
and training my muscles,
by seeking friendship
with the Almighty, 
trying to walk with Jesus,
uplifting strangers 
and sojourners
on the way toward  
His promised land.
I pray my sweat and blood
exude a pleasant scent.

Scrubbing my heart
to cleanse it 
from all the mocking labels
that glued my gaze 
to the charcoal floor
Healing
from the poison of deceit
Growing 
confidence in Him.
Striving to become
a better shape of me, 
learning from Him, 
the perfect model.

Thank you for reading.
