Not Just

Maya V.

No, Im not just a zany hat

Not just a billion bracelets

Not just a big black jacket

Not just a weird, dark emo

Not just an art freak or "that girl"

Not just violence or what you heard

Not just a rebel, rude or resilient

Im a swift black racing Camaro

Im a cool summer beach at midnight

Im sweet like the song of fall blue jays


Im your most favorite poem

Hard to understand but worth the time

Im down to earth but way up high

Like a swing set at a breezy park

Not just secrets or a mystery

Not just a small heartless rumor

Not just an emotionless rumor

Im a tree way up, reaching the sky

Im a kite trying hard to catch flight

Im a gold glove boxer in a fight


Im strong enough to be different
