The length of my feet
Do not fit the height of my body
And I think that in itself
Describes the way I have felt

Always a little bit more awkward
Than probably necessary
always tripping over something
even when it’s nothing

And I wish I could stand up straighter
but I’m afraid to take up the space
the space that other people might need
even when it was given to me.
