Push-ups with bro

Poetry

“Hundred,” he boasts,
As he puffs his chest.
Proudly he stands,
As he dusts his hands.
“Your turn,” he says, 
As his eyes gleam.
I take one deep breath,
Myself, I motivate.
My lazy brain, I ignore,
As I kneel on the floor.
My palms meet the cold,
Plank position, I hold.
“Go,” he says, full of encouragement,
His eyes sparkling with excitement
.
I lower my chest to meet the floor,
And my hands are already sore,
Oh, damn floor!
Why are you so far?
I don’t have much power,
I really can’t go lower.
“One,” he says as I finally make it.
Another one, I can’t take it.
“Just one more,” he encourages.
My face scrunches,
As I try to muster the power,
And push my chest lower.
But then I hit the floor,
That’s how it goes, push-ups with bro.

  2. Well I don’t know how it feels to have a brother but I guess having an elder sister is the sameπŸ˜‚
    My sister is like so bossy I spend my whole day doing things for herπŸ˜‚

    1. Well, well, well, Maryam… I’m the elder sister. It’s my younger brother who makes me do the push-ups. I did12 today, yay!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      1. Oh well at least I don’t have to do push-ups but I have to bring a glass of water to my sister fifty times during the dayπŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. I would rather you save your strength for writing! Another exceptional poem. I believe, in my many years, this is the first one I have read about push-ups. You are a true creative writer! Well done, little one!

    1. Haha, Brad. Thank you so much! I’ll definitely save my strength for writing. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ Your encouraging words truly means a lot to me. πŸ€—πŸ€—β™₯️β™₯️

      1. I’ll definitely do Chetna… I used to read all your posts.
        But these days, I’ve been taking things light. I don’t read as much, I don’t even talk as much. I’m still slowly coming back from the break. Got too much on my mind.
        But now that you mentioned, I’ll definitely check it out right away.
        Loads of love. β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

      2. Thanks Shreya!
        I totally understand what you want to say. There are times with me too when I don’t feel like doing anything . Just give yourself some freedom from the thoughts, if you are feeling disturbed of them…and for once just let it be!!
        Ofc, it’s easier said than done but then the thing which you are going thru is also not easy, haina. So why not try for a better option. I just want to help you in whichever way I can. So this is the one I have found.πŸ˜ƒ
        Thanks for visiting. I hope you liked it.πŸ˜‚πŸ’œπŸ˜

  5. Omg… This is so hilariousπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚….. And that’s true…. U can write on any damn topic….. Someone should just name it…. And u have a poem on it….. You r really very talented…. I hope, I too get so soon…. Keep writing…. Looking forward πŸ₯°πŸ˜

    1. Thank you so much, Komal! Really means a lot to me. Thank you so much! You’re awesome too! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’•β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

  6. Thanks for the poem! I needed the laugh, and to know I’m not alone. XD I go through the same thing when the fiance and I workout together. The only difference is that you’re clocking more push-ups than me. I’m just happy if I get one in. πŸ˜›

  7. LOL. Is this a thing that happens? Bros get their sisters to do pressups with them so they can show off how many they can do?

    I’ve been getting back into doing these lately at long last. And let me tell you, I used to do ridiculous amounts of pressups and be super strong, but getting back into it after a long break really is a struggle! You can build up strength surprisingly quick though :). Just got to stick with it and they become more enjoyable! πŸ˜€

    And I’m really confused by the picβ€” she has such masculine arms! Very impressive!

    1. Oh yeah! It happens. But don’t worry, I’ll beat him soon! 😬😬😬
      Haha… I hope you build your strength back soon. πŸ€—πŸ€—
      That’s a man’s picture. Finding free images of women doing push-ups is such a task. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      1. Having a brother is pretty cool. 😬😬😬
        Idk, I didn’t click that picture. I took it cause it looked like a woman. πŸ€ͺ
