"Some people fall and are embarrassed. Others fall and turn it into a beautiful dance"--John Mayer

Who is this girl staring back at me?
She may not be popular but doesn't try to be.
She's loud, awkward, spontaneous and fun,
She is frequently known as the "dangerous one"
She's odd, and clumsy, and laughs at stupid things,
She looks forward to change to see what it will bring.
She's simple, down to earth, and far from glamorous,
She loves the feeling she gets just from being generous.
She's hopeful that her hopes and dreams won't die,
As long as she stays positive and always tries.
She falls way too easily head over heels,
Her favorite phrase: "this is legitimately not real".
She prays in times of need and relies on her faith,
She also believes that true love waits.
She dares to dream and is uniquely her own,
She's an individual but at times she feels quite alone.
So at 11:11 she wishes every single night,
For someone to see her heart and her optimistic look on life.
So who exactly is this girl I see?
She's nifty, she's awkward, she's awesome, she's me.

I wrote this piece as an assignment for my creative writing class at school. We wrote down a bunch of words and exchanged them with others and we created poems based on the words we had.
