School Poem

This poem is about how I am not what everybody thinks I should be, I'm not 'cool'. It's about how I'm just trying to be myself through school and that I do not care what other people think.

I have a strange feeling we would be best friends if were in the same school. It's funny how much I can relate to you and btw I love your poem.

Just A Normal Girl

I'd like to think myself as normal,
Just an ordinary girl.
But I'm not into butterflies,
I don't do ballet twirls.

I hate wearing make-up,
No eye shadow or blush.
I don't have time in a morning,
As I'm always in a rush.

I don't wear fancy underwear,
Especially not a thong.
For all the girls who do out there,
I think it's kind of wrong.

I don't spend hours on the phone,
Just simply chatting away.
I only need to take five minutes,
On my hair everyday.

My room is not spotless,
My room is not a tip.
I don't put powder on my nose,
I don't give teachers lip.

I don't go after every boy,
That I come across.
I don't think I'm better than everyone,
Don't think that I'm the boss.

I don't walk with my breasts,
Held high up in the air.
I don't try to shake my bottom,
Or twirl and flick my hair.

I just want to get through,
These taunting years of school.
I don't care what you think of me,
I don't care if I'm not 'cool'.

And I do have a good time,
A laugh with all my friends.
I balance it with learning,
This is my beginning, not my end.

This poem is absolutely amazing. It is just like every girl at my old school. I wish I could meet you in person! That would be awesome! You are a very inspiring person and you are going to help me a lot by getting me throughout the next 7 years of school and then uni. I am only in year 7. Wish me luck!

P.S. thanks for the poem and confidence

Please. Can you please move here and go to my school? I wish that there were more kids like this. For me, sometimes I'll wear makeup and spend time on my hair and clothes, but only when I'm in the mood for it, which isn't very often. And I went through a stage where I was pretty superficial (when I started middle school), but I'm a lot like you right now. I hate how people think that you have to be loud and obnoxious and good at sports and blah blah blah to be worth something. I hate how people call me a nerd or a killjoy because I want them to shut up so I can focus on working. Anyways, great poem, thanks for writing it :)

Haha, EXACTLY how I am. All of that idiotic "Cool" and "Popular" stuff doesn't suit me at all. AT ALL. I find it interesting and relieving that there are others out there that aren't all about the "Outside" lookers. >:) Good job!

That was awesome! I'm not in high school yet since I'm only 12, but I think there is the same problem at my school. I think kids in my class are more focused on staying at the top of the social scale than actually doing something with their lives. I don't care about my hair, or spend an hour looking for the perfect clothes. When we have free dress, I put on jeans, a t-shirt, and a hoodie. I'm a quiet girl who tries to ignore what people think even though it is sometimes hard. I thought no one else could understand! thanks!

This poems just sums me up completely! Everyone at my school judges you on how you look and doesn't care about personality. Every morning I tie my hair back and put no makeup on and like it says in the poem I don't care what people think because they don't really know me! Some of my friends are quite popular so I guess I am in with that crowd sometimes and it isn't me at all! So nice to hear about someone else who doesn't seem to care about being part of the popular group! Loved this poem :)

When I see my cousin. I could feel the hurt all around him. When I look into his eyes I see the pain in them. When I hang out with him I feel the hate on him and the jealously. I could feel that people or some put him down everyday. I could feel that his heart is broken. I can tell that he wants to cry but doesn't want to. I want to walk a mile in his shoes. I learnt to see what he is feeling. Cousin all I am going to say is come to me for help. There is still hope for don't give up and don't listen to what they say. Just live your life and live on.

why do girls even care about looking nice
boys don't even notice you at all
they don't care how you look or they never notice if u put on makeup
don't try to make your self pretty for just a guy
you pretty just the way you are
no matter if your dark, light, short or tall
only you can be you
and you're beautiful just the way you are
don't try to be pretty just for guys.

Finally someone who realizes that high school isn't about relationships and showing off. People just forget that they're only going to be there for a couple of years and that when they get to college their professors aren't going to care how many "friends" they had or what brand of jeans they buy. It's so nice to hear someone with some perspective. Thanks for writing this poem

I can't believe that you haven't any comments, because I think, that's the most admirable attitude I've heard from a school girl before. It kind of seems hard to find a girl like you at school, but I realize now, it's only because you're the girls who don't make a fool of themselves.
Cheers mate.
