Hello, I'm the girl who sits in the corner.
Of course not. Why should you give me a second glance?
Quiet, brainy, unassuming
This is what you see. I guarantee it.
If you were to join me in the theatre after school
(my "turf" just the same as your precious field), I would be
I am many things.
Quiet and brainy, yes, but also shockingly
Always ready with a quick gibe to add humor to any conversation
and just as ready with a kind word and shoulder to cry on.
Underneath this serene exterior, I am bursting with the
magic of Mozart and the beauty of Bach,
longing to share what I hear.
Listen to my silence,
hear what I'm not saying, and you have the potential to
unlock my most secret dreams.
But already I see your eyes clouding over in boredom.
So leave me to my corner, please.
I have no time for you, who judge me without giving me a chance.
But do yourself a favor and read a dictionary.
You may be the butt of more jokes than you realize.
