The Stranger In The Mirror

Your chest is far deeper than I recall,
Your arms have muscles where once there were none,
You look stronger, healthier over all,
You’ll be the new Charles Atlas ’fore you’re done.

You have more confidence than when you were
A fifteen stone weakling all fat and flab,
And from the way you dance I can infer
That you’ve now got some power in your jab.

Now’days you look a lot more confident,
The change is for the better in my view,
I hope the transformation’s permanent,
And that you’ll have the strength to see it through.
