Riya Pandya If I Were 1 Inch Tall

By: Riya Pandya

Being just an inch tall …. sounds really strange, but if I were really such, I would really be very unique and special. All the equipments I would use had to be very diminutive. It might sound strange but I would have lots of leverage. I can go anywhere I wish to without a travelling mode.

Just a small crumb of bread would be enough for my lunch and I can also explore many new things and get new experiences.If I wanted to go surfing, I could just turn on the tap (of course, it would take me a year) and jump into the sink. If I wanted to drink juice, I would tell my mother to make it for me and then I would jump into the glass. I will go to all the places people cannot enter, like the battery of a car. I could explore many new places and things to understand about them.

I could ride on a worm to go to different places. Just a piece of cloth would be enough for my clothing. I could sleep on a book and put it‘s cover on me as a blanket. When any of my things would be spoilt, I wouldn’t need to buy new ones, I could use the things around me.

If you were only one inch tall, you'd ride a worm to school.

The teardrop of a crying ant would be your swimming pool.

A crumb of cake would be a feast

And last you seven days at least,

A flea would be a frightening beast

If you were one inch tall.

If you were only one inch tall, you'd walk beneath the door,

And it would take about a month to get down to the store.

A bit of fluff would be your bed,

You'd swing upon a spider's thread,

And wear a thimble on your head

If you were one inch tall.

You'd surf across the kitchen sink upon a stick of gum.

You couldn't hug your mama, you'd just have to hug her thumb.

You'd run from people's feet in fright,

To move a pen would take all night,

(This poem took fourteen years to write--

'Cause I'm just one...
