Size Matters

Whoever said size matters
Never watched an infant grow
(A quarter inch every week, I hear)
An infant who’s still precious
And innocent
And valuable
At every size
And stage of life
To say such a thing
They must never have seen
The gargantuan sequoias
Or watched the miniscule ants
Scurrying up its bark
Whoever said size matters
Probably never knew a person
With an eating disorder
Or a food addiction
Or who cried every day because they weren’t
Tall enough
Petite enough
Skinny enough
Athletic enough
Beautiful enough
Smart or strong enough
For who?
Who is this ridiculously insatiable person?
Well that person, my friend, would be
Whoever said that size matters
