Nice to Meet You
Amanda, Age 14, Alameda, CA
                     
I
wonder what people think when they see me

Do
they see confidence, happiness, and beauty?

Do
they wonder what great things I’ll pursue

And
hope my accomplishments are something they’ll amount to?

Or
can they see past this façade—

Break
the barrier, thus exposing my flaws?

They’ll
soon see I’m quite a bundle of insanity

And
run to find anyone who’s not me

But
then I’ll stun them with the realization

That
I couldn’t care less about reputation

Because
people who are interested enough

Can
ignore all the first impression stuff

And
those who expect what they saw that first day

Probably
don’t belong in my life anyway
