A Poem: I Don’t Care

I don’t care how much you weigh.

I care about what weighs on your soul at night.

I don’t care what size you wear,

What matters to me is the size of your heart.

I don’t care what is on your plate,

I am much more concerned about what is on your mind.

I don’t give a damn about your diet,

I want to know what fuels your dreams.

running

I don’t care how far or long you can run,

I am much more concerned with what you are running to or from.

Weight, size, calories, and diets do not matter to me.

The ability to shrink yourself no longer impresses me.

For I have learned to value what truly matters.

Love, light, connection, and art are what drive me in this life.

I no longer care…

So I no longer care about how much I weigh.

I care about what weighs on my soul at night.

I don’t care what size I wear,

What matters to me is the size of my heart.

I don’t give a damn about my diet,

I just want to make sure I fuel my dreams.

no longer running

No longer running from myself or my fears,

I am able to be present in the moment.

Weight, size, calories, and diets no longer rule my life.

I no longer define my worth by my ability to shrink myself.

For I have learned to value what truly matters.

Love, light, connect, and art are what drive me in this life.

And I realize that I matter, simply because

I am.
