I hate how the other girls snicker behind my back like I don’t notice.

Anything that I think is frowned upon.
My clothes are plain and I don’t glamorize my hair.

Boys hardly look my way.
Everyone seems to look on the outside,
And I look inside.
Usually I ignore it,
Till the sun is masked by gray.
I can care less what others think.
Funny I have friends who won’t
backstab.
Usually I look upon this, then
Lingering in my head are these words….

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

You're Welcome!!

A great and meaningful piece. It captures how most girls feel at some point in their lives. And the "I am beautiful" was really clever too!

When I typed the poem down "backstab" immediately got it's own line.  It wouldn't let me put it in with it's correct line.  So I made sure that  I capitalized every first letter that needed it except for "backstab"  I think I messed up with the periods.  Thanks for reading, and commenting!!!!!!!!!! :D

the I AM BEAUTIFUL thing is soooo clever! i love it! i was wondering why you put backstab on its own line i was like uuhh okk...? but thats such a great idea! the only thing i have to say is that at the end where you put the bunch of periods, you should always stick to just 3 to make it look professional. other than that, fantastic job. hehe you shouldve seen my face light up when i figured it outt :P

That was great :) NEVER would've thought to put 'I am beautiful' there.
