Different - Poem by Nathan Strange

I cried
because
I wasn't like them
And the
More I cried
The Less like
Them I became.

I tried to be
Like them

You know…

Ordinary

Normal

Mundan e


Boring…

Now I realise
That they never
Change
And they will
Always be
the same

But I tried
To be like them
I really did

I really wanted to be...

Normal

Ordinary

Mundan e

and

It all seems so silly now

Why did I try and be like them?

Who in the hell wants to be
ordinary, normal and mundane?
