Tread Lightly

Tread Lightly

A Poem by JessicaGadziala

"Tread Lightly"- 12-28-13



It's six a.m. and I am thinking about 
not eating again
about the numbers
on the nutrition labels
and the tape measure
and the treadmill readout
and the scale maybe going down for a change
because I am starting to take up too much space
and maybe if I could shrink
and contort
and force myself to become 
a smaller target 
then maybe I can finally feel
worthy of the area I occupy
the ground underneath my feet
wont constantly be screaming
about treading more lightly.
