I'm A Girl Too

I'm a tomboy, that is true,
But at the same time I am still a girl too.
Just because I don't express my feelings,
Doesn't mean I don't have any, because I do.
I may not be open with my emotions,
But I get happy, sad, and angry just like you,
Except I am better at hiding them than you.
You might never see me cry,
But that doesn't mean I don't shed the same tears everyone else does.
Just because I dress like a boy
Doesn't mean I act or think like one too.
A sports lover I am indeed,
But I love other things too.
The majority of my friends are male,
But I sometimes wish I had a girl friend too.
I was born a tomboy, that's all I have ever known.
But sometimes people forget that I am a girl too.

Yeah, I've been called a "young man" by a man who works at Kroger, "sir" by a waiter, and a guy asked me "There's a guy's club volleyball team?" It's pretty harsh when people look at you as a guy, even though I sometimes like it, but a lot of times, I don't. Love the poem! Keep writing!

I'm in 5th grade at Whiteford Elementary . That means I've been at my school for 5 years and almost EVERYBODY knows me. I haven't always been a tomboy. People who've known me BEFORE I became a tomboy know I'm a girl. But ALL the 1st graders & kindergartners think I'm a boy!!!
When I go in the girls bathroom, they deny me when I tell them I'm a girl!! I shouldn't be mad at them. They are JUST little kids. What still makes me upset is that even grownups think I'm a boy. Just because I wear stuff from the boys section and have a boy-ish haircut DOESN'T MEAN I AM ONE!!!!

I am 15 and consider myself somewhat of a tomboy. I love hanging around guys and doing the things they do and being like one of them. I wear jeans and tee shirts like the guys and try to think like them also. Sometimes my 'girl' mind takes over and then I want to be a girly girl, but that doesn't happen very often. I just finally made my first communion on may 19th and it was a struggle for me. I had to wear the white dress, veil, tights and shoes and I felt really weird, even though everyone said I looked nice. I couldn't wait to get out of the outfit after my party.

I am the only girl wrestler in my home town. I wear mens shorts and I hate perfume... and it makes me want to cry when people think I'm a boy. I'm considered one of the guys, and I have wayyy more guy friends than girls. I really like this poem... don't stop writing!!!

I may not be the most tomboyish girl in the world. I'm sort of a tomboy but others don't see it. however one of my friend really is a tomboy. I know she feels a bit like you when people call her that. Once, a little kid asked me why I hang out with a dude. I told him she is a girl. Others also call her a him, sometimes asking her if she'll wear a tux during grad. Even if I'm not her, I get really unhappy at those comments. I like her for who she is, not how she looks. keep writing!

I am a tomboy too, and this is a really great poem because it expresses so much. I hate it when people call me a boy. My name is Taylor and I hate it when people call me Tyler, it's so immature, but it still hurts. This is a great poem, keep writing.
