That Nerd

Hi
I'm that nerd girl
The one you walk past in the hallway
her books on the floor
But a smile on her face
laughing
I'm her
I'm that nerd girl
who reads at lunch time
and recess
and is classified as teacher's pet
I don't mean to be
But i like it
i like being me
it is fun because
nobody expects me to be
crazy perfect
or gorgeous
they just expect
me
So I'm that nerd girl
Want to read comics with me?

I love this :) and it's so true. Being a nerd is so much better than trying to be popular. You're actually allowed to breath.

Thanks! That means a lot coming from you, considering I never thought you would be a poetry type of person :)
