Do you remember? 
I use to follow wherever you went.
You would pull my pigtails. 
I would start to cry, so you would relent.

You would push my nose 
And tell me I was too short to hang out.
I would stomp both my feet
I did everything I could do, to shout

I am NOT too short!
My nose is just right!
These pigtails are mine!
I don't want to fight.

Holding back giggles,
You pulled on my pigtails, pushed my nose down.
I would become flustered, 
Trying everything not to show my frown.

"Why can't I just play?
"Everyone else can!"
"Shorty, you're too small."
So away I ran

She came and got me.
Wiped away my tears, gave my nose a pinch.
And quietly whispered,
"Do what I do and this will be a cinch."

She ran to the right.
She ran to the left.
She kicked the ball hard.
And she scored a goal!

My laughing cousin,
Lives inside each and every one of us.
Its the love that we feel.
Being accepted, even when we're short.

Being a shorty myself, I can relate . Don't like taller folks belittling me. Yes, being accepted? For all heights. Panagiota Romios
