Weight a Minute

feet on scales for weight lossWe arrived at a desolate stage

Where a number other than age

Defines who we are and what we mean

And ruins our mood, previously serene

Whether it is too high or too low

Mentioning it deals a heavy blow

Because people’s mindless talk and chatter

Renders us slaves to this silly matter

Regardless how much we love ourselves

Another’s rudeness, in us, delves

Plunging us in a state of depression

Which brings us back to the matter in question

Who cares how much, on the scales, you weight?

Do they even know how much, this, you hate?

Some people gain it out of nothing

While others crave it above everything

But it’s as if it’s the greatest sin

And people start just butting in

Blurting rude comments under the guise of care

While all they want is to compare

They know that this is what brings you down

And they’ll parade it all around

But they know not – or maybe they do

How much their words are hurting you

But the truth is and has always been

Regardless of the body you’re in

What truly matters is your wonderful soul

And who says otherwise is just an a**hole!
