I’m Sorry World, Just Being Me

Dear World,

I’m a dork, I make an honest living and I don’t complain. I am nice and good to people even strangers. I don’t waste my money on silly fads because I don’t want to fit in and I want to stand out. I like to read and not just books about sex. I don’t have crazy piercings or tattoos, I’m just plain. 

I  have morals and believe there is more to life than money, sex and drugs. Yeah, that’s cool but it doesn’t rule me. I don’t fit in, I don’t follow stereotypical trends, I‘m not ballin’ and I‘m not iced out. I don’t put rims on my car or obnoxious sound system in my car, I outgrew those things. I don’t eat bacon, let alone pork or even beef. Sometimes I’m broke. Im sorry Im not what you want me to be.

I’m sorry I don’t complain about things I can’t change. I’m sorry I don’t worry about who talks about me or doesn’t like me. I’m sorry my closet isn’t filled with Jordan’s. I’m sorry I don’t fund the 401K of Ralph Lauren’s employees. I’m sorry I don’t want to pay astronomical prices to see a rap concert. I’m sorry I don’t have the most expensive of everything. I’m sorry.

I am sorry world. I choose to be different. I choose me over you!

Yours Truly,

L. Woods-Green
