How to Walk in High Heels

Step 1: Don’t fall.

.

Actually, if you fall, do it in style.

Slide into that embarrassment with a laugh

and make sure you’ve got no bruises

before looking to fix your pride.

.

Step 2: Don’t climb stairs.

.

Actually, yes! You can climb those stairs.

You can go as high as you want really.

Because who’s going to let an extra three inches

pull them to the ground?

.

Step 3: Don’t run.

.

Actually, run however much you want.

Because you have so many races to win

and a little feminine flair

is not a reason to be in last place.

.

Step 4: Don’t wear what doesn’t match your style.

.

… You know, maybe just don’t worry about it.

Wear those bright red stilettos

whether you’re six feet tall, wide,

short, female, male, gay, straight, sideways…

.

You know what?

Just wear whatever the hell you want.
