Who Are You?

Who are you
To be calling me names
I’m just a nerd
Playing academic games
Who are you
To be pointing out my flaws
When you’ve yet to mention
Any of yours
Who are you

As you walk down the hall
With your picture-worthy smile
I feel my self-esteem
Lower all the while
With your shapely face
And your flawless complexion
It’s not hard to look past
You hair-straightener obsession
You laugh and you giggle
Gossip with all your friends
It’s not easy to go back
To being me again

Who are you
To tear me apart
Do you find joy in
Throwing daggers at my heart
Who are you
To give me dirty looks
When you see me
Reading a book
Who are you

Your body so skinny
It makes me shiver
It carries your words
In the form of arrows and a quiver
Your thick black mascara
Like a mask around your eyes
How much make up it takes
To feel satisfied

Who are you
To be calling me names
I’m just a nerd
Playing academic games
Who are you
To be pointing out my flaws
When you’ve yet to mention
Any of yours
Who are you
