I am tall but
I feel small.
I try to be tough but
I feel like I am known to be weak.
I am told that I’m beautiful but
I feel as ugly as can be.
I have good grades but
I have lots of pressure upon my shoulders.
I would love to have a calm life but
I know that drama always has a way of creeping into my world.
I am told I am graceful but
I see myself as clumsy.
I try to work hard but
I feel as if it is never enough.
I smile always but
I usually just want to cry.
I like to think of myself as supernatural but
I know
I
am
only
human.

I guess everyone feels like they're nothing at some point in their life, but it's hard. I guess I just had to get it off my chest, for once, instead of hiding in my shell. Thank you poetry!

I really liked the end! The middle could have been a little better in my opinion. Maybe a different word choice? It was great overall and you have potential as a writer! You have a great way of putting feeling into your writing that others can relate to. Don't stop writing!

This is cool. I like your description by the way. Everyone feels this way/questions their appearances and/or habits at some point in their lives. I'm sure SO many people can relate to this, basically everyone. Lol. Great job! :)
