Yes, I am a teenage girl
No, I don't squeal over One Direction
No, I don't wear mini skirts
No, I don't curl my hair everyday
No, I don't need my phone 24/7

Yes, I am a teenage girl
Yes, I prefer Edward Scissorhands over Edward Cullen
Yes, I like violent video games
Yes, I like action movies
Yes, I listen to Rock

Yes, I am a teenage girl
No, I don't draw hearts all over my homework
No, I don't spend 20 minutes trying to make myself resemble a porcelain doll
No, I'm not afraid to cry
No, I don't party every weekend

Yes, I am a teenage girl
Yes, I hate reality shows
Yes, my hair is short and messy
Yes, I'd rather walk in the woods
Yes, I am okay with mice

Yes, I am a teenage girl
Yes, I'm different
Yes, I'm strange
Yes, I'm my own person

Why is that bad?
Why do you hate me for that?
Why can't I just be myself without your criticism?
Why is it horrible if I'm not just like you?

I don't have a problem with it
Maybe the problem isn't me
Maybe
Just maybe
For once, in your perfect little world
You are the problem
Inspired and written for all the people who feel bad about themselves because of what someone else says. Because everyone deserves to be themselves and be proud of it. Not be criticized for it.

PLEASE READ!!!
EDIT: Okay, first of all, THANK YOU ALL for so many favs in such little time! You have no idea how much this means to me! :la: :dummy: :iconermagerdplz: :iconfabulousplz: And another thing....
I think there has been a misunderstanding with my poem. My point in writing it is to tell the people who think that people like me are bad people for not having identical interests to them, that they aren't so perfect either. NOTE: I have absolutely NO problem with people who like One Direction, Edward Cullen, or dislike violent video games, etc. I have plenty of friends and family that do like these things. But the people I go to school with that aren't as friendly, look at me as an outcast. I pointed this poem at them, and wrote this entire thing only to get the point across that everyone is different, and if there's a problem, it's not the person who is different. It's the person that is trying to be perfect, and bringing others down for not doing the same.
EDIT 2: Again, I think there's some confusion going on, I feel like I'm offending peoples!! :noes: I'm not trying to say "ERMAHGURD I LIKE EVERYTHANG DIFFERENT AND I'M SPECIAL", this is more of a "Look, if you don't like me, that's your problem" than "I'm special", even though, from comments, it sounds different eheheh ^^; And I do know a lot of girls feel this way, and some that don't are still respectful of opinions, but the ones who aren't really need to think before they speak. I'll admit, I did write this when I was in a bad mood (don't judge me, writing is my way of getting angry), and this poem needs more revision to make sure no problems form. To anyone that already thinks I'm trying to say "Look at me, I'm special!", I promise you, I'm not. I'm equal to everyone else, nothing puts me above another person.
EDIT 3:
Okay, this really has nothing to do with the poem itself, honestly people, stop spamming. I've hidden at least five comments 'advertising' getting a car, and one of them was pornographic. If it happens anymore, I will not hesitate to report you. Thank you, and have a good day 
EDIT 4:</b>
LOL WHY IS THIS CRAPPY THING STILL GETTING FAVES, IT'S MORE OF A RANT THAN ANYTHING, I DON'T UNDERSTAND

You get faves because it's a good point! And I'm going to follow in suit because I relate to that point and I'm going to kill the father the next time he tells me to stop dressing in gender neutral clothing because it apparently makes me look like a guy. And honestly I don't get half the stuff most kids like, anyway...

Yes, I am a teenage girl....No, I do not base my entire existence trying to impress the likes of other people. No, I will wear things that won't show off my curves. No, I'm not who you want me to be.

Wow, it almost feels a little creepy that everything fits in so well on me. This is what i have been thinking for six years. Then i guess im not the only one.
Also everytime someone say that they like Edward i think for myself that twilight has ruined vampires :D because vampires don't sparkle!
Theire gothic and badass and suck blood simply because they want to!

Haha, nope! You aren't alone, there are many of us just like this! 
And yeah, supernatural charcter as a whole have become slightly dulled because of Twilight. Personally, I don't think the storyline is tHAT awful, it's just Bella's undying infatuation with Edward where literally nothing else matters. She becomes selfish. And yes, vampires are meant to burn in the sun, not sparkle, haha.

I didn't accuse you of anything, it has nothing to do with you. Just those who read this in general, we must all remember not to think like that because no surprise many people do.
