Stereotypes


We have groups we go by in high school.
We have the PREPS you see at the games,
the JOCKS with their jackets thinking they’re so tough,
the SKATERS with their long hair and don’t mess with me attitudes,
Freaks and Gothics being miserable as can be,
the GROUPIES who join the crowd,
the LONERS who secreted themselves away,
your GEEKS and NERDS the brainy acts of us all.
But you think you know me,
you LABLE me,
PREDICT me,
PUSH me aside.
Just one look and you already decide.
You don’t know I’m a blooming rose,
A POET,
A WRITE,
A SISTER,
A DAUGHTER.
I’m more then you think,
don’t judge me at first sight.
You don’t know me,
what I’m like.
