2005 - 7th Grade 5th Place:

Ariann Holden, New York


Maybe I wear baggies
And white socks with flip-flops
May I don't like listening to Rave
And maybe I'm not on the social mountain-tops
Maybe I don't care about the things
that make your worlds twirl
Maybe you look at me and think
Gee, what a nothing GIRL
Maybe I like giving smiles
which seems to be a sin today
And maybe I allow my imagination to run AWAY
Maybe you don't understand this
And that's why (you) cannot see
If this makes me a NOTHING GIRL
Hey, that's OK with me
The world makes you believe that….
your personality mustn't be detected
your face must be picture perfect
and wear clothes just the best
Maybe I look at you
and feel sorry that you're blind
Robots you have become
Yourself you'll never find
You were made as well as me this means….
I am something
And if I must be nothing for you to see it then…
