I Would Rather

I don’t want to count the calories Dancing on my plate. Id rather count the miles skipping beneath my wheels. I don’t want to see the numbers Flashing on my scale. Id rather see the blur of scenery Flying past my window. I don’t want to hear the people Laughing inside my head. Id rather hear the seagulls Begging for food around the beach. I don’t want to hate the girl Staring at me in the mirror. Id rather love her instead Smiling every time I see her. -ARI
