Just Normal


I’m not extraordinary.
I’m not especially eccentric.
I’m emotional.
I eat, sleep, dream, die
Just like the rest of you.
I’m just normal.
And I like it that way.
I like the waking up
And the sleeping
And the dreaming.
The dying not so much.
Just words on a platform,
Trying to tell you how normal I am.
So you don’t think that
The thing I had destroyed me.
Or my sense of self-worth.
Or my hopes and dreams.
I still look in the mirror
And frown.
But only on occasion.
It’s not a defect,
I’m just normal.
That’s all I want to be.
Just normal.
Just normal.
Just normal.
