Numbers

Location

Numbers that hurt, numbers that judge

Like digits on scale, marks on tape

Sewn on a tag, printed on a sticker

Numbers we hide, that we dare not share.

 

But numbers with pride, numbers we earn

Like beats per minute, miles on machine

Counting repetitions and increasing weights

Numbers that matter, numbers that prove

I’m better than that, I’m stronger than that
