“We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” - Doctor Seuss


I will come out on top;
I am no body's second.
The things I do, I do great;
The things I do, I do best.

I'm not the back-up singer;
I'm the one the spotlight's on.
I'm not the story co-writer;
I'm the I'm the powerful author who wins.

I'm not the sucky poet;
My poetry art thou great.
I'm not the left-fielding softball player;
I'm the all-star pitcher who leads her team to victory.

I'm not the girl whose kinda smart;
I'm the one on another level.
I'm not the blend-in wallflower;
I'm the radiant, not-to-be-ignored girl who stands out from the crowd.

I'm not second; I will not be looked over.
I'm not to be dismissed; I'm not the mediocre one.
I'm not the one who will amount to nothing.

Because I'm the one who will amount to everything.

And I will not be ignored.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem because I was really sick of having people expect me to be not as good as I really am. And I wrote this to remind myself that they are wrong. Completely. I will have my moment; and I WILL shine.
