Short is Cute! Short is Sexy!


His mother once said I am short

Too short for my tall son

I took it as a compliment

Embracing ‘short’ for all fun


This world perceives beauty in a way

My perceptions vary

There were times I was bogged down

By concepts of beauty —so scary


I look up and see the world

Looking down upon me

As if everything up high

Is slightly higher just for me


Looking through my little eyes

They all look elevated

For the love of all tall men

An imaginary world I created


A world where I be tall

Without the lift of pencil heels

And walk a walk to remember

Not facing societal ordeals


But then I know this is real

And I am a petite babe

And what’s the harm in being one

I still am in a brilliant shape


Sometimes I’m a lil’ adorable darlin’

Sometimes I wear the height of pride

I change as changes seasons

Takin’ best of both worlds on a ride!
