Treasure Island

Alexandra Puddle

(01.02.1994 / Whangarei, New Zealand)

Im just a girl

I am just a girl
I don’t have to be perfect
I am working on being myself
And I’m not going to change for you

I am just a girl
Wanting to be loved
For who I am
Not who you want me to be

I am just a girl
I’m not that different to you
Treat me right
And treat my fair

I am just a girl
Not an alien
I’m not trying to ruin everything
I just want to be were I belong

I am just a girl
Standing in front of a guy
Asking him to love her

I am just a girl

    fantastic poem. Really shows the true emotion. We dont want to be anyone but ourselves, so dont make us change who we are. ENCORE! (Report) Reply

    Loved the simple sensuality of a girl, when you stand in front of a guy do not ask please, just do it! A 10. (Report) Reply

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
