the Giraffe

Who new, until other giraffes grew, that I was to remain short. My parents and sisters, aunt and uncles, are ALL tall. Not me. I still have a long, beautiful neck, it’s just my legs that are too short. A little giraffe in a big world, I felt lost. My new friends have helped me to see, there are many reasons to be happy being me - Shorty the pint-sized giraffe!

Shorty I will always be, the giraffe that will never bump his head on the branch of an African tree!
