Tiger stripes along my back

Skin stretching, lipids showing

A sign of a gluttonous past

Tiger stripes on my hips

Bending and swelling

With all sorts of activity

Tiger stripes on my belly

Unseen by many

A sign of a growing boy

Accepting the past, and the future

Removing old weight; gaining new weight

Leaving a sense of determination

Ups and downs

Scaling to new heights

One day my image will change

“You’re perfect the way you are”

Clawing my way to 130

With my tiger stripes
