I wrote this poem because I was tired of all these things people want you to be, this image the world burns into our minds about how we should be, how we should look, turning us into robots. But I won't! Some people, some of them friends, say I am weird, and I think I like it. It proves to me, that I dare to be different.

The poem is about being different, and others seeing you as being nothing, cause you don't look or act, or care about the same things they do.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Teen Poems

Nothing Girl
Maybe I wear baggies
and white socks with flip-flops,
maybe I don't like listening to rave
and I'm not on the social mountaintops,
maybe I don't care about the things
that make your worlds twirl,
maybe you look at me and think:
Gee, what a nothing girl.

Maybe I like giving smiles
which seems to be a sin today,
and maybe I allow my imagination
to sometimes run away,
maybe you don't understand this
and that's why you cannot see,
if this make me a nothing girl,
hey, that's ok with me!

The world makes you believe
your personality mustn't be detected,
your face must be picture perfect
and wear cloths just the best, to be accepted.
Maybe I look at you
and feel sorry that you're blind,
robots you have became,
yourself you'll never find.

God made you, as well as me,
this means I am something,
the world is a liar
and if I must be a nothing
for you to see it,
then so be it!

    the poem really has made me realize that what a crazy person i am . that i was living to please alll other people instead of me. this is a poem which should be recognised. i really wish that u should write more poems to inspire other girls . including mee.

    YOU GO GIRL! Be yourself, be the best you can be, be what you feel comfortable with! SMILE, the world is occupied by faceless youth trying so hard to be different that they all look the same. Nice to see someone being really different by being honest with herself.
