Back

If being the strongest,
Deserved reward,
wouldn't the gorillas inherit the world?

If being the fastest,
Meant you belong at the top
wouldn't you have reached it by now?

If being the tallest,
Spelled superiority,
wouldn't the giraffes rule us all?

If being the thinnest,
Was of the most importance,
wouldn’t the the insects walk our runways,
as opposed to our gutters?

I say, live in your skin,
And don’t concern yourself
with the appearance of others.
