"That's attractive"


I don't wear dresses

or high heeled shoes

I'm known for my messes

necklaces and rings, I'd most likely lose


I burp like a man

and eat like one too

I'm proud that I can

But kids judge as all kids do


They say "That's attractive"

with a sarcastic tone

So I laugh and fake being hyperactive

But I care more than what is really shown


I may play it off like I don't care

But it hurts when they judge who I am

Every harsh word adds a new tear

In the face I pass off as a scam


My friends don't know I'm hiding behind the curtain

But  as long as they stay happy, I'll make that certain
