A Poem by Underestimated

All those pretty people, listen up.


Those girls who are attractive

Thin and beautiful

The ones with shiny locks

And are reaking hypocritical


The girl who brags

I’ve got ten guys on me

But then says with grace

I’d rather be ugly


Every boy is in love with me,

She says endlessly

Then she’ll say like an angel

I don’t care what others think


I wish those girls would see

They’ve never been overweight

They’ve never been ugly

So they should really try it

And tell me what they think


They say that world wouldn’t bother them

But they take a step inside

And see the transformation

Of Dr. Pretty to Mr. Hyde


But what they have is on the outside

My beauty stays forever

So laugh at me

Call me names

But I’ll always be the winner

Author's Note

Sorry, this is personally a rant. I was really angry when one of my good friends became like this because she lost ten pounds and was tons more shapely than before. And the girl in the cover picture isn't me, I just picked her randomly off of google.

The last stanza says it all for me, its all a farce on the outside. Beauty is skin deep........These girls a full of S...! This poem depicts the whole situation, spot on!

What a fantastic rant. You should rant more often! I really enjoyed this. Such truth in your words. An important message, said with great vigour. Wonderful.

they should try being ugly for a moment...maybe what happens would suprise them.. i hate girls like that who think theyre perfect because no one ever is.

No need to be sorry!! It is good to vent out and you have done a good job here. I am in love with the last stanza, such optimism in the last line - "But I'll always be the winner".

dont be sorry, this is part of you coping up with life. Writing your feelings is a great way to express and letting the anger out. true beauty stays forever in our hearts and soul.

Oh bravo! I'm with you on this. I can't stand when someone tries to act better than everyone else because maybe they're skinnier or has had more guys wanting them. In the end, you're in fact the winner. Haven't you heard that the true beauty is within? So if you have an excellent personality you outbeat those girls. :D I see it that way. I am proud of how I look. I use to be ashamed because I wasn't as skinny, pretty, or having guys dropping down to my feet. But I could care less what people think. Your last stanza is amazing :)
Great job. Keep your chin up. You're the TRUE winner.

YAY! Great poem. Absolutely loved it. I'm 30 and yet this takes me back. Liked the words and the flow. Keep writing.

Personal rants give birth to great poetry they stir true emotions in the writer and those emotions transpose truth to the reader.

I'm thirteen. A very young and inexperienced writer. I love romance, adventure and supsense writing. (and maybe, just a little bit of horror) But I am so excited to see what I'll learn being here! .. more..
