Not your Average Girl-poem

She is not your average girl
Not even by far close to normal
She’s off-kilter
Her smile though
Is romantic
Promising and charming
It wrinkles up her face
And when it’s gone
You knew its hidden somewhere
You alone can find

She is not your average girl
Not even by far close to normal
She’s off-kilter
Her heart though
Is affectionate
Amiable but ambitious
It makes her vulnerable
And when she’s weak
You knew it’s her strength
You alone bring out the hero in her

Oh, how you love her just perfectly.

  1. I had read this before. While I loved your words this made me a little sad for my own personal reasons. I am a little like this girl. It seems she’s not liked very much nor loved but she likes herself and loves herself. So yes your poem is tremendous strength for us who want to live our way with confidence. Never see average as mediocre…I will See it differently now because of you
