An Ode to Short Teenage Girls

February 18, 2019

FREE WRITING

6
It took me a while to learn that being one of the shortest in your grade is nothing to be embarrassed about. 

If someone holds my dreams too high, I'll kick them in the stomach to reach them.

If someone uses my head as an armrest, I'll kung-fu pin them to the ground and crown them my future employee. 

I am a descendant of queens, of empresses, of conquerors. 

I have a face of steel and the glare of an animal ready to pounce. I bleed the blood of warriors.

I do not rely on other people's swords to slay dragons, because I carry my own. 

I do not need caffeine to fuel me, my heart beats from the fire in my veins. 

I am fearless.

I am ambitious. 

I am power and I am beauty crammed into five foot one. 

And I do not come with an apology letter.
