Stereotype This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I saw that boy again today.

You know the type.

Stocky

Appears as if he should

Play defense in football.

His gruff exterior,

Which shows beard stubble

And wavy brown hair,

Is contradicted

By his piercing blue eyes.

A heavy scent of CK1

Trails behind him.

The type of boy

A girl would have to be

Crazy not to

Admire.

Sometimes I would watch

Him out my front window

Before school and

Wonder

What he is like.

From the way he

Sauntered down the street,

He most likely

Was obnoxious

With no respect for anyone.

This morning he was

Late and

His mother drove him to school.

Stepping

Out of the car,

He looked fondly at his mother and

Gave her a

Peck on the cheek.

I had to wipe the

Tears

Gathering in my eyes.
