Silly, Nerdy, Only Me

Location

Books with yellowed pages, worn from  use.
Glow-in-the-dark stars from my dark-fearing youth.
These are the things that make me, me.
Stashes of chocolate under my bed,
Wavy brown hair growing from my head.
These are the things that make me, me.
 
Tall cups of coffee on cold early mornings,
Sometimes ignoring my parents' stern warnings,
These are the things that make me, me.
Saturdays consumed by marching band,
A purity ring on my left hand.
These are the things that make me, me.
 
Loud, belly laughs about silly things,
Obsessive compulsive tendencies.
These are the things that make me, me.
Marshmallow Peeps for every season,
Spontaneous hugs without any reason.
These are the things that make me, me.
 
I may be different, I may be strange,
But that is more than okay.
Those are the things that make me, me.
