I Am A Girl
A filk of "I Am A Rock," by Simon and Garfunkle
With apologies.
By Caduceus-kun

A boring day
And I have to go to high school
I am alone,
By myself at lunch time, underneath my tree
And no one's willing to come sit with me.
I am a girl
I'm not your enemy

I am strange
Or so I've heard them call me
They don't bother to whisper
I don't want their attention, it only causes pain
And when they're gone their laughter still remains
I am a girl
I'm not your enemy

Don't talk of evil
You don't know what you say
It is always surrounding me
I hear their mocking comments, I don't know why they hate
I don't understand why I am cursed by fate
I am a girl
I'm not your enemy

I have my games
And my techno songs to protect me
I can fight back with quick thinking
But then you came along, and everything's gone wrong
Now I realize how alone I truly am
I am a girl
I'm not your enemy

And a girl's not evil
She needs friends just like you do.

I Am A Rock
Simon and Garfunkel

A winter's day
In a deep and dark December;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don't talk of love,
But I've heard the words before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.


Though really, "I am a Rock" can pretty much apply to her without change.
