Numbers

These days,
It seems like
What defines us isn’t
Just our character or personality.
There is something that holds a greater weightage.

Figures displayed
On your score sheet,
On the stock markets,
Next to your follow button, and
On the weighing scale
Are what matter more recently,
In my opinion.

Once posting a picture,
One secretly hopes to get more likes than their previous post.
Once climbing onto the weighing scale,
One secretly hopes the value shown is smaller than the previous time.

It’s sad how majority of the competitions are based on these numbers and there is really nothing much we can do about it.
