This is a poem that I wrote about myself. It's not entirely "poetic," per se, but I felt I expressed myself well.

I'm sick and tired of this,
Putting up false pretenses
About who I really am
Because honestly, I don't really know.
I'm not a music junkie,
I don't know every single band EVER
Or really have a favorite genre
(Relient K is still AMAZING though).
I'm not crazy into Pokemon,
Though I was obsessed
Until I was around 13.
I'm also not obsessed with Batman,
Or any other superhero, etc.
I don't have a specfic style of dress,
But I do care how I look.
I'm not a stereotypical writer,
But I do love writing itself.
I'm not pessimistic,
But to say I'm optimistic ALL THE TIME
Tends to stretch it.
I'm not perverted,
At least not too much.
I'm not even a stereotypical nerd,
I hate studying and loathe history,
And I don't know trivial facts,
But I'm smart.
I'm not really into video games,
And the reason I don't play much
Is because I'm horrible at them.
But hey, I'll try.
I've never played D&D,
And I'm afraid that I'd be absolutely horrid,
But I'd try.
I've never skydived (skydove?),
But I want to.
I doubt I'll get into MIT,
But I'm sure going to attempt.
I'm absolutely obsessive with MLIA,
I love Neil Gaiman as a writer,
I love writing itself,
Relient K is AMAZING,
And I love to play the flute.
I aim to be a chemical engineer one day,
I love science and math and english,
Harry Potter trumps Twilight infinitely,
As does pretty much everything ever written.
I'm afraid of being embarrassed,
Or that people won't like me.
I don't like the dark or needles,
And I have an irrational fear of being afraid.
I hate being alone,
And I'm always looking for friends,
Or even more than friends.
Most times, I don't know what I'm doing,
Especially when it comes to dealing with people.
I think I'm a good leader,
And though I might not please everyone,
I do my best in everything I try,
And mind you,
I'll try anything.
Basically, I'm just a girl,
Wandering through life,
Looking for a guy,
Trying not to get lost.
I'm not punk,
I'm not emo,
I'm not hip,
I'm not preppy,
I'm not hyper,
I'm not even really nerdy.
I'm not a stereotype.
I'm me.
Mellow, easy-going, indecisive,
Easily-amused, sporf-loving, bookish,
Shy, people-pleasing, band-obsessive,
Musical, looking-for-acceptance, slightly awesome ME.
(I'm horrible with adjectives.)
Do I really know myself that well?
Nope.
But I learn more every day that I live.
And I intend to keep it that way.
