I gave up sugar
For Lent
Forty days seem far
But I won't bend
It's funny how
One can depend
On one thing that
Doesn't really help

I gave up sugar
And as I did,
I hope to become
A better me
Free from the junk
And from all the unnecessities

I gave up sugar
For Lent,
And so far I don't regret
It is not always easy
I won't pretend

I gave up sugar
For Lent,
And I know
It's for the best.
