I am.... a nerd.
I wear glasses,
I play in the band,
I get good grades,
Like video games,
I'm weak and spineless
But so much smarter than people
Like you.

I am.... an outcast.
I dress funny,
I act weird,
There's something wrong
Inside my head.
I'm too dumb
To understand people
Like you.

I am.... an art freak.
I doodle over everything,
Dress a little different,
I am always colorful
And pretty happy,
I see the world
Differently than people
Like you.

I am.... a gay guy.
I talk like a girl,
I just adore the color pink,
Oh, and I'm going to Hell.
I have no morals,
And  instead I have AIDS
And should be kept from people
Like you.

I am.... emo.
I dress in black,
Have sidesweep bangs,
And cut myself
Because life sucks.
I hate my life and
My parents and people
Like you.

I am.... a prep.
I am mean and neast
To everyone.
I love drama
And back-stabbing.
I am perfect and
Way better than people
Like you.

I am.... a jock.
I play sports
Like wrestling or football.
I have no brain,
Just brawn.
I am a bully
And love messing with people
Like you.

Jock.... prep.... emo.... gay....
Freak.... outcast.... nerd....
This is what you call us.
This is what you think.
Even though every one of us
Are just people....
Like you.
Steryotypes, Ihate them. Oh, and notice the word cliches? Those were put there on purpose. Just so you know.Tell me what you think, please!

To be honest, I think this piece has the potential to be a thought-provoking masterpiece...but it needs more work. Now, I'm not saying I'm an expert on poetry or anything, but it does come across as a bit same-y.

And the title needs spell-checked. "Stereotyped" is what you need, kay?

Hmm.... any suggestions as to making it better?

Ahh, thank you very much >.< I can't spell to save my life....

I'm thinking, maybe you need a bit of work on the structure. It's a bit uniform and not terribly appealing to the eye.

It's okay. I'm happy to help~

That's cool. A thesaurus wouldn't go down badly. Maybe get a nice big one for Christmas/ winter holiday celebrations/ presents time? You do get some specifically suited to rhyming stuff.

Yes, a thesaurus definately could help....
Although, I personally prefer not to 'rhyme' in poetry.

Okay then. If rhyming ain't your cuppa tea, that's fine.

Amen to that. We're all made of skin, blood, and bone. We're all the same species: Homo sapiens . Stereotypes sicken me.
Well done, hopefully people will read this and think about their actions and words. Words can hurt, despite the little rhyme, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me."

Everyone is the same. We are made of the same stuff. Everyone almost lives the same way. Why stereotype them because of their choices, or things that they have no control over? Amazing poem. It will make people think about what they say and who they say it to in the future. :)
