"If I knew where poems came from, I'd go there"




- Michael Langley, 'Staying Alive'


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.

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

For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

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!
