Nonfairytale, Poetry, Tough Love


Numb3rsNumbers are a universal language
Lately they’ve been put to bad use
Misread and misleading, an excuse to reduce
Results known to cause damage
Don’t let numbers define you
Break free from them and go find “YOU”
Measurements, likes, and shares
Numbers seem to rule the world
Used to rate both guys and girls
What’s your definition of self esteem?
Is it determined by your looks from 1-10?
Or by the number of “likes” you get from men?
Guys, is your value your net worth?
Or how much you bench at the gym?
Or an expensive car with chromed out rims?
Numbers. They have their role in life
But important things don’t have numerical measures
Like priceless moments and life’s simple pleasures
Numbers. They can’t measure true beauty
They definitely don’t measure love
And your worth? Well, that was determined by the man up above.
