~Sorry I don't conform.A Poem by Ali Mayne
I've watched countless friendships and relationships blossom as they step outside for a f*g - sometimes I wonder if I'm missing out. Consider this ventilation; it's been brewing for a while.
Sorry I don't smoke.
Sorry I don't go clubbing til the early hours.
Sorry I don't get drugged up on illegal substances.
Sorry I don't listen to Noughties music on the radio.
Sorry I don't hang out backstage and sleep with my idols.
Sorry I don't have £100 on my Oyster card.
Sorry I don't drink alcohol in Central London.
Sorry I don't dress like a s**t in tiny skirts and high heels.
Sorry I don't bleach my hair dry or want to look like a barbie.
Sorry I don't spend stupid amounts of money on the latest fashionable trend.
Sorry I don't go to the gym to meet guys.
Sorry I don't like the iPhone.
Sorry I don't like the Blackberry either.
Sorry I don't rely on my phone for absolutely everything.
Sorry I don't constantly cruise my phone when my friends are right in front of me.
Sorry I don't want an upgrade.
Sorry I want to live as long as I can.
Sorry I find entertainment in cinemas and cultural activities.
Sorry I want to stay clean.
Sorry I treasure music of the ages.
Sorry I would rather enjoy the gig and keep the memory without getting hurt.
Sorry I can only afford my travel in £10 segments.
Sorry I can't afford overpriced bottles of beer in Central London.
Sorry I feel comfortable in jeans and trainers.
Sorry I can dye my hair pink and still feel comfortable in my own skin.
Sorry I prefer to save before I spend.
Sorry I want to lose weight, tone and improve my health.
Sorry I just want a phone that texts and calls people.
Sorry I reply to texts.
Sorry I call back when you accidentally dial me.
Sorry I email when I want to hear from you.
Sorry I want to be your friend.
