A Pretty Princess and A Tomboy

A tilt of her head
Smiling; pouting;
Inspecting her reflection in the mirror
She shone.

High school has a charm of its own
Slowly but surely
Her beauty only maturing
Alluring appearance and unparalleled beauty.

A mirror and a washroom,
Used by all, free and unfettered
As they primped and they powdered; flipped their hair;
Fixed their sweaters; adjusted their skirt length.

To the world’s inattentive eye,
She and others like her were only students,
But here, she reigned like a queen.
Smiles. Sneers. Taunts by peers. All reflecting a superficial dream.

And then, there were likes like me.
Simple and boring. More of a tomboy less of a girl.
A part of the guy’s brigade; their buddy but never a girl to vie for.
Somehow whitewash and makeup was a masquerade that never mattered.

A little less fortunate I was
Where number of boyfriends mattered.
No girlie stuff. No mirror as a friend. No second glance.
Never to primp or to prep; or running my fingers through my hair.

Eye shadow; mascara; a waste of time.
Basketball and badminton court a perfect place to stay.
Temporary insanity under the blazing sun,
Canteen and playground was my way of fun.

    1. Thank you💗😊🙏 it was always like that… I was in the guy’s gang…a part of the gang so they never actually felt I was a girl…😜 used to see them make a fool of themselves for the so called princesses… they were beautiful and had a way with makeup and style…which I could never learn😃
