The True Me


I am for sure not the typical girl
It is hard being me when society is trying to change me.
Instead of getting wasted on a saturday night
I would be curled up out of sight reading a romantic book.
In school I don't hang with the popular crowd,
I only have four close friends around.
I am not a cheerleader, I prefer being a basketball player
who hopes she never loose sight of who they are.
With all my might I will always remain
that not so typical girl who lives down the block.
