The Littlest

by Emmie Rawle

I’m the smallest in my family
But I will grow
Just wait and see
You’ll never know.

Hand-me-down clothes, 
Always told what to do
I’m the littlest sibling
In my family zoo.

I’m the youngest, the smallest
and the most wee.
But I’m growing and growing
I’m just like a tree.

That’s right big sister
And big brother too
One day I’ll be
Lots taller than you.
