I used to think I am petite,
wishing I was taller than 1.6m.

My dream when I was a kid,
was to grow, grow, grow.

Sadly, it never happened,
after I hit my 16th year.
The mirror I peeked at recently,
saw me taller than I last checked.

Dawning on me;
each step I took,
the hard knocks I endured,
every journey I experienced,
the buckets of tears I shedded,
injected some unknown hormones,
silently and invisibly,
triggered a growth unseen.

No longer vertically challenged,
I declare,
my wish fulfilled,
taller I have become.
