Normal
Mediocre
Nothing Special about me
Public school
Friends that are cool
And a house by the sea

A normal face
Another in the crowd
Not gifted at anything
At least nothing to be proud of

A smile stapled to my face
A laugh empty s air
Dirty blonde hair
And skin that’s pale not fair

Boys don’t look at me
But they all text my friends
I’m not flirty or giggly
And I don’t give a s*** about trends

Honor student
Never the best
After schools with other peoples drama
I’m the one who needs the rest

My future is blank
My dreams are too big
I’m not special to any one
It’s hard to believe that my life has just begun

When reading this
Don’t feed me all crap
How I’m beautiful and amazing
Because this is how I feel
And there’s no changing that

You're wrong.
There are many people out there who don't have it as good as you. You have it all and all the doors are open for you. 

Stop wasting people's time.
