"The Right Kind of Gal" - An original poem

Hey girlies! Here’s an original poem written by GL girl Michelle, 15, for school. Take a peek and tell us what you think in the comments.

“The Right Kind of Gal”

There are so many people I’d like to become,

so many options for me to choose from.

A beautiful girl who seems almost too good,

with pincurls and white pearls, who does what she should.

How ‘bout a gal that wears flaming red pumps,

with a boyfriend a week that she then goes and dumps?

Then there’s the girl that’s in 10 different clubs,

a mathlete and science geek who earns all A+’s.

But at times I do yearn to be sporty and fun,

playing softball and baseball, getting twenty home runs.

I could become the next Barbie at school,

with Starbucks and Sephora being, “like, totally cool.”

What if I learn to play bass and the drums,

with pounds of black liner and Nirvana’s albums?

With such an assortment of girls I could be,

from excessively brainy to fun and flirty,

I think I’d much rather prefer to be me.
