To Girls Like ME
Don’t push me to be someone I’m not.
I’m not the girl you want.
I don’t wear trendy clothes.
My shoes aren’t the newest, I suppose.
Just please let me be the introvert I am.
Just please don’t make me all shiny and glam.
I’m not that type of girl.
People who think that’s all we are make me want to hurl.
I like sports and building and solving algebraic equations.
I only get really fancy for special occasions.
I don’t spend half an hour doing my hair,
And assuming all girls do just isn’t fair.
I am who I am and that’s enough.
Just don’t assume who we are because that’s just messed up.
So, to all the girls in this stereotyped place,
Just be yourself and keep a smile on that pretty face.
