So im a Cheerleader!
Whats the big deal?
At least I do constructive things,
And don't make it a point to steal.

So I'm Rich!
I cant help that!
At least I buy useful things,
And don't buy snacks to make me fat.

So I have a happy family!
Acctually their not!
My parents just fight all day.
My dads sleeping on a cot.

So I'm popular!
I don't make the rules.
People just seem to like me.
They think i'm kinda cool.

So I make real good grades!
I'm sorry that I try.
I don't like frying my brain.
Just to get high.

So next time you want to judge someone.
Look at them deep inside.
Cause maybe their not as bad as you think.
And maybe they have nothing to hide.

It's a great poem - with a great theme behind it, but watch out, cause within the poem you are also judging others.

This is very good writing but I don't understand are you bragging or complaining.

I am glad you actually talk about being smart and not hiding it like most popular people. Very touching poem.
