I envied teen boys who seemed so tough;
When after gym we stripped and showered—
Their hormoned muscles appeared hot-stuff
They seemed so manly—super-powered.
Who would notice a teen so scrawny?
My parents told me I'd soon fill out.
Would any girl eye a body so phony;
What if I never did begin to sprout?
For unknown reasons girls noticed me.
This must be some fluke I surely thought.
They'd walk close by wanting to talk with me;
Although envious chums seemed quite distraught.
A few would engage me to walk them home.
We caressed warmly till I wanted match-play.
Some dared ride my Ford with taped on chrome—
To one school, then another, we drove our way.
Looking back now, muscles didn't mean so much.
The girls I kissed sought a more gentle touch.
My pals oft lied about the girls they'd laid.
By the ones who liked me, I was amply paid.

|I too, was small built. Pant size 30 x 30 for as long as I could remember. There was a girl in 10th grade that started following me everywhere I went at school. That girl is now my wife of 37 years. I would rather have warmth to give than muscles to show. May God bless you every day of your life.

|I can relate to this, Regis. I was very small all through school and really did not put on weight until my mid twenties. However I do remember that the girls enjoyed my company so I let the boys play their games and enjoyed my own. Thanks for sharing. Love and peace,

|I was skinny. Really Skinny. Yet there is someone for everyone I believe and in the end I made out like a bandit. Patrick|

|The growth through adolescence into manhood is one of God's great miracles. I didn't understand it then, I understand it far less now.
This is a wonsderful recollection...

|Yes can relate to this one Regis, I think I weighed in at 98 lbs when I was in high school, often called nicknames such as skinny mini, the stick, thermometer etc.
