Above All That

I speak but, what if my voice is too low?

I breathe, but is it too loud?

I eat, but too much?

I’m smart, but is that not the "cool" thing?

I shop, but at the right stores?

I’m nice, but should I be to those girls?

I study, but maybe I should be throwing a party.

I work, but they say Daddy should pay.

I play sports, but what if I break a nail?

I curl my hair, is it too frizzy?

I paint my nails, is it too childish?

I go to bed early, but should I be sneaking out with them?

I go to the dance, is my dress short enough?

I blow off some old friends, but what if I needed them?

I laugh, but how do I know they’re not just laughing at me?
