Am I pretty like her?
I ask myself that question
Everytime I see a mirror.

Can I be everything she is?
But I already know the answer,
How could anyone love this?

She can sing, I can squawk.
She prances so perfectly in the halls,
And I lumber when I walk.

My eyes are faded brown, hers are pretty blue.
She beams with confidence and smiles,
While my heart has been ripped in two.

Everytime I see a mirror,
I ask myself a question.
Could I ever be pretty like her?

Insult my clothes, I say, “Okay, thanks for the compliment.”
Insult the way I look, I say, “Thanks for notifying me.”
Mock me and say riding isn’t a sport, and I’ll say,”You say that ’cause you can’t ride.” But before you make fun of my horse, make sure you have “911″ on your speed dial.

I can relate to this poem very well. And ask myself that question when I see my crush with another girl. But hey, you are who you are, and why die a copy. C:

My fav quote (4now)
When I met you my heart skipped a beat..... the sun became the moon & cold became heat.... Roses weren't red an violetes weren't blue.....And all because i fell IN LIKE WITH YOU <3

This is really good and sounds like how i use to be, always comparing myself to other girls, my friends. Thinking that boys could ever like me because i was too lame and ugly. But now i feel pretty n great n almost kool. N im shure u will one day tooo....
