Four feet eleven inches.

Shorter than everybody. Shorter than my role models. Shorter than my enemies.

Shorter than my three younger siblings.

It took me a while to realize I was the only one who cared.

I was the only one frustrated by how close my seat was to the gas pedal.


I was the only one bothered by asking a stranger for a box of cereal from the top shelf.


I felt everybody looking down at me. So I gave them reason to keep looking. 

I found a new approach on my tip toes. Stole attention with my ideas.

Wrote as if each word kept me from disappearing.

Decided every risk I took would give me another inch. Dared myself to grow.

Picked up a pen every time small meant less.

Revised expectations. Started making plans.

I'll challenge assumptions with a tweet. Use their perspective as my punchline. ​

Gonna crack jokes on air, live from Studio 8H.


I'll interrupt their podcast, blow up in their feed,​

Change the game with a manifesto. Stream it on ESPN.

Yeah, screw their experience, their status, their stature.

Give me a stage, I'll lower the mic.


Put on a show.​ Call it The 4'11".
