The weight of the world
Is on my shoulders
Like hierarchy
Weighing me down
And the only scale too low
Is my confidence
So I use numbers
To validate me
Because my BMI
Is too high
And my self-esteem
Is too low
I seek approval
From notifications
As if the number of reactions
Would be enough
To substitute my own confidence
But I’m confident
It’s not
