Weighted – Poem

Today i would like to share a poem i enjoyed reading.

I knew I wanted to step on the scale
But my mind was screaming “don’t”
Because that number only tells you
How much gravity is pushing down on you
Not how much you’re worth

I stared at the wall
As my bare feet touched the cold surface
For once, I was strong and didn’t want to see
A number that would break down
The very small wall of self esteem
I have been trying so hard to build

I prayed I would see nothing
Higher than a 4
Or else my day would be done for
I looked to the spot between my feet
As though I was looking into a crystal ball

And surprisingly, I liked what I saw
