Normal Girl - Poem by James Grengs

Normal girl-
You'll never be
Attractive.

Normal girl-
You'll never be
Worthwhile.

To me,
This normalcy,
Average Jane,
How boring!

Give me a girl
Who views life with an artistic slant
-That is to say, who thinks differently
Than everyone else says she should.
I'm sorry, Normal Girl-
You just have nothing to offer me.

Give me a girl
Who scorns the normal,
Choosing instead to live life
Differently,
According to something other than peer pressure.
That is what I want.

Normal Girl-
I'm so sorry, but you can't have me.
You don't fit that description.

And for you, My Girl, whoever you may be,
I know what you are,
Maybe not who you are.
But I know that you are not normal.
And to you, I say,
Watch out. If you are different,
You are
Attractive,
Worthwhile.
That means,
I'm coming after you.
Look out!
