Would You Love Me?


If I were shorter, would you love me?
Would you tuck me under your arm
Or notice me even less?

If I were louder would you love me?
Would you hear my pleas
Internal for you 
Or drown out my cries with indifference?

If I were thinner would you love me?
Call me "cutie" and spin me around? 
Or simply let your gaze pass me by?

Maybe if I was funnier
Perhaps smarter, prettier, brave...
But since I can't change myself
Would you love me for me?
