More than 71 inches
By Chelsea Chinedo
Yes, we are all either short, average, or tall, but there is more to us than height. It’s about who we are on the inside. Look into the interior and less at the exterior. We are all perfect the way we are. We are never too this or that.
I love being tall I would hate to be small I’m tall like a tree but hey that’s me I know I’m tall but no, I don’t play ball I don’t care for this conversation all I know I’m five eleven, I see myself twenty four seven But my height isn’t really that relevant What matters is that I’m intelligent and my height is only part of my development, I’m like a chemical element, My unique qualities are evident Being tall is not the only thing that defines me when I hear it all the time it stings like a bee, I wish they would see that there’s more to me If people could see beyond my height they would realize that I’m bright not because I’m high but I’m full of light, I see things from a different sight but that doesn’t mean that I’m uptight I’d appreciate it if you didn’t look at me like a hermaphrodite Girls come in many different sizes and when everyone realizes we will be undivided if anything reunited Being tall doesn’t make me any less feminine, in fact I benefit because I look elegant and no, I’m not a gentleman For the last time! I’m not too tall! Do I need to install that into your brain because you don’t seem to recall, not at all And while this has been fun, I really should run because this conversation is too overdone How’s the weather up there you asked? It’s about negative two degrees maxed and while we both listen to the same weather cast, I’ll leave you with that thought because it’s the only one that I’ve got
