Little Miss Perfect

I wonder how she would like it
Little Miss Perfect
She’s the best at everything,
Sometimes it doesn’t feel fair
My dad always says if I just work harder it’ll pay off in the end
But for once, just once!
I’d like the glory,
The feeling of five solo’s and a duet in the chorus concert
Year after year
To be able to see MY NAME next to the lead role on the cast list
It must feel great to even have a chance…
One time, I was talking to a teacher about something I was doing
She came and interrupted, saying (more like exclaiming)
“Oh, I do almost twice that much in a month? Is that good?”
I choked back the tears and nodded my head,
Congratulating her on a job well done once more
Inside I was screaming at her,
Can’t I have one moment in my life when I feel the best at something?
Not second or third or last to everyone else?
Especially you
The tenth grader with the world in the palm of her hand
Little Miss Perfect,
There are moments when I hate you.

I love this. It reminds me a lot of some people in my life who love to brag about who they are. Keep up with the great writing

You asked me to comment on your work, so here I am. I read your other two poems as well, and can relate the changing of rythems to alot of my poetry! Please comment on my poems when they get published! I was happy that you enjoyed my story, and am hoping to make you feel the same way by telling you that your poems are very lovely! They are very unique!

i think the parenthases take away from the piece although they wuld be nice it they had created a rhyme the beginning was rlly captvating but i felt the end needed a lil something more

thanks, and yeah I think you might be right. The ending does leave a bit of something to be desired
