Stretch Stretch You Heard Me Stretch

Updated on April 15, 2010

Every Day Counts Begin Now

Wake up sleepy head and lets move those arms and legs

Do it for yourself and you will be proud

Nobody will notice but you will feel the difference

As the days pass faster than a deck of cards being shuffled

You have a chance to find the ace

If you start one step at a time

You will surprise yourself time and time again

More energy you will feel even though you are so sore in the beginning

The aches and pains will go away

As long as you keep your muscles at play

They are meant to move and dance

So don't be disappointed at first glance

Think back to when you were young

Everyday you went out and played

You wouldn't come in until you were told to

Let your heart do its job

You help it with a little effort and support

Bending and stretching is just the beginning

Soon your body will surprise you

The boost of extra energy you feel is real

Let your body react and welcome its new found joys

You have come along way

Keep going in the right direction

The past is over and the future is right before your eyes

You live in the present

You experience the pleasure and satisfaction of your accomplishments

Do you remember when you sat on the couch all day

What a shame someone else has taken your place

You are walking

Soon you are jogging

You have picked up the pace

Where is the race?

There is none

Only one healthy body passing by
