[Girls in the Hall]
Look at her, look how happy she is,
Dang she has life so perfect!
Yeah, look how skinny she is!
And those designer clothes-
If I was even half as lucky to have those!
She never has bad hair days-
All the guys love her!
She's lucky her parents are together-
And that divorce isn't even near the picture!
Her teeth! They're so white-so perfect!
How come she gets the most perfect life?
She's every thing girls want to be!

[The 'Perfect Girl']
Talk goes around me-everyone thinks I'm fine!
They're all jealous of my 'perfect life!'
They probably have no idea how much trouble I've been through to get this thin-
I hope they don't know my clothes are from those yellow bins!
If only they knew the hair's a wig-
One I've worn ever since my chemo days,
Ugh! And these guys all they want is everything But me!
I bet they think I'm lucky to have 'two' parents,
Huh, if they only knew I was adopted
And that dudes my uncle and the chicks his girlfriend-
And that my parents are dead...
If they knew I prayed everyday that no one gets so close to my face that they realize my teeth are fake-
That they're implanted!
And that I lost mine in a fatal car accident-
Yeah, that's just a little less than perfect!
Why do girls want to be me?


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem because people think others have life so great when no one knows the real story...they all just want to play 'poor me' when there's others out there suffering cause they're living the most Imperfect life...never pre-judge...

I love the contrast between rumors and reality. Perfectly done. No complaints here. 5/5

I was born an original, I'm not going to die a copy.

I love this poem. It makes you realize that everything is not what it seems. It really makes you think.
