“Smaller” by Eden Cotter – Poem


By Eden Cotter

She is tall.

She takes up space.

People see her beauty,

Yet she only sees herself for what she is not.


Someone breaks her heart and

She convinces herself

That becoming smaller

Must be the answer.


She believes if she

Becomes smaller

Others will be able to occupy all the space,

Then no one will leave.


She shrinks and

People comment.

She mistakes their

Worry for praise.


She begins to feel hopeless but

Being small feels like

Her only solace.


She holds on tightly

But her fingers are

Slipping off the ledge.


She lets go.

She discovers her worth.

She recovers.
