Weight

by Rachel Newman (Class of 2017)


You are not your weight
You are the weight
The stars put on your shoulders,
The weight you carry day after day,
Even when your shoulders and knees
Burn like a dozen suns.
You are not your weight
You are the weight
Of your golden ideas
Shining brightly for only your closed eyes,
Making your brain
The most valuable object in existence.
You are not your weight
You are the weight
Of the ocean
On your tired limbs and soggy clothes,
And yet you tread,
With the strength of a tidal wave.
