The scale daily torments me

Mockery looms at the mirror

My war zone ever stocked

No escape route in sight

Temptation far and near

The nag, oh so loud

I shut out the world

Confined to my space

My mind does a zigzag

Confused? No, resolute

Call it shame, call it fear

Bring no more, I do not care

Pushing ever so hard

My steps become labored

Heart rate drops, I shudder

Then, suddenly, all is still

As I slowly fade away
