Tall

If I were as tall as them
I wouldn’t have to stare at a hem.

My neck wouldn’t feel as much pain
from constantly having to strain.

On a walk I would be able to boast
that I could keep up with most.

And if I were faced with stairs
I wouldn’t have to worry of muscle tears.

Walking in grass would be best
because it would no longer tickle my chest.

My lower back wouldn’t get stiff
when it came time to do a leg-lift.

And if I went to a park
all would pay attention to my bark.

In sum my life would shine like a gem
if I were as tall as them.
