Let's talk about the weight
of your beautiful, fragile body.
Not the number on the scale
meaningless and forbidden.
Let's talk about the weight of your arms
as you hug a loved one.
Or the heavy lids of tired eyes.
Your flesh being dragged across
your seemingly endless lifespan.
They weight of rocks in your bones
as you grow towards the heavens.
Your weight is so much more
than a number
