#NationalPoetryMonth – Losing Weight

Losing Weight

 

Looked in the mirror today

to discover that I had lost weight.

My smile seemed more genuine,

And I looked more confident in my body.

I had worked hard to get to this point,

Exercising every day to excise

The weight of other people’s expectations,

The weight of self judgement,

Self-doubt.

The weight of wondering if people were talking about me

or ABOUT me.

The weight of measuring up

To people who never wanted to be measured in the first place.

I’m still exercising,

And I have cheat days every so often.

But I’m losing weight

And I’m trying hard not to go back.

Episode 74: Honey Nut Cheery-Ho’s

In this episode, I am joined by Ms. Zee (@Child_Of_Favor) Rich (@RichNice2k1) Titus (@TrojanScooter) and Delphrano (@Delphrano) and we discuss football, poetry, and hip-hop. Then we are joined by Will (@WallStrizzle1) and we... talk hip-hop. What did you expect? We are the #SSHHRT, after all! This is part 1 of 2.
