The day before an important match,
I check my weight to see where I am at.
I wince at the sight,
Of the 4 red digits that appear,
I begin to panic,
I am 5.4 pounds over,
What will I do?
I pull out the sweats,
I unroll the plastics,
Its going to be a long practice.
After practice,
I check the scale,
Still 1.8 over.
The next day at school,
I sit and wait,
For weigh-ins.
My body is starving,
Its thirsty and weak.
I can barely function,
Time goes by slowly,
I can feel my heart beating as I sit in class.
I’m tired,
All I want to do is sleep.
This is what I deal with,
For my sport.
