A Poem by Amber Perry

The first of several poems I wrote when I was in the 10th grade.

I'm supposed to write a poem.
Free verse.
I suppose it should be sort of... describing me.
Not physically, of course.
Why would the teacher want that? He can see me. So,
I guess I should start with the basics.
Perry, fourteen years of living; your average tenth-grade geek.
I love music more than 
Music is my whole life.
I like to write and sleep and eat
particularly bacon and ham.
I'm handy with computers
and I spend too much time watching television.
(My favorite show is-and will always be- Buffy.) Yeah,
I told you I'm a geek.
I am also too emotional.
I get way passionate about anything
from videogames
little brothers.
I'm not afraid of spiders or snakes
but puppets
(yeah, puppets of all things)
freak me out.
I don't care about gossip
but somehow I always seem to
know about it anyway.
I'm different.
I'm strange.
I'm me.
Deal with it.

Wow, that's a lot lamer than I remember it being. Go easy on me; this was over three years ago that I wrote this. I like to think I've improved.
