Scales

I stepped on the weighting scale and I looked up

Afraid of what I’ll see when I look down as the weight may not have dropped.

I crossed my fingers and even my toes

Hoping to end a bit of my woes.

Slowly I looked down, praying the scale would be good to me

And then!

Defeated

Down and lost

You feel like quitting.

I see your pain, though you hide it.

Yet even in moments when everyone lost hope on you

You persevere

Move on

And learn.

Every moment of sadness

You reach for that glimpse of glory.

You are the best when you are defeated

Because it is in those moments, you show that you can still shine.

Of Losing You

Still haunts me to this day when I think about the time

When I was so afraid to lose you,

You were my poetry, my rhyme

But we’d just lose it all, who knew?
No one told me it was fleeting and I got caught up

Too afraid, so I didn’t move

I looked around and I stopped 

I was afraid of losing you but I lost you all the same

I Will Lose

Shed those extra weight 

Remove all self hate

Driving oneself to the distance

It takes a lot of hard work, give yourself a chance

Don’t give up now, you’ve come a long way

Show them what you’re made of now insead of waiting for someday

Sweat it out and enjoy yourself

I go on and tell this to myself

No one will do it for me

And so I go at it, in the end we shall see
