I'm sorry that I'm not you.
I'm sorry that I'm not skinny.
And that I'm not cut out for a model.

I'm sorry that I don't have a fake tan.
And that I prefer to keep my skin natural.

I'm sorry that my hair is red.
And not a fake bleach blonde like yours.

I'm sorry that I don't wear clothes that reveal too much.
And that I prefer to wear band t shirts and jeans.

I'm sorry that I don't wear those massive hoop earrings.
That I think are uncomfortable.

I'm sorry that I don't listen to the same music as you.
That I don't like the overplayed RnB songs and prefer Heavy Metal.

I'm sorry that I don't act like you.
That I don't go out every Friday night to night clubs and prefer to stay indoors and read, draw or write.

I'm sorry that I'm not as popular as you.
That I don't go around in a big group trying to act cool.

I'm sorry that I'm not as pretty as you.
That I don't cake my face with make up and just wear eyeliner.

So that's all I want to say.
I'm sorry.
Basically, how I feel about girls my age (most of them being chavs)

I'm not going to apologize for who I am. Because it's not my problem.

This is very Powerful and TRUE. Society places WAY to much EMPHASIS on looks.
*Ahem* Keep up the good work:D
This piece would be perfect for a new project we are developing -- an online gallery for artists who have been bullied or who explore the theme of bullying in their work. It's called the You Will Rise Project. Check it out here: [link] and let us know if you would be willing to share this piece on the site. Read the "Submit Your Work" section of the site for details. Thanks!

YOU,my friend, are incredible for writing this.
hell yes!! I like this..a lot. Nice!
While I was reading this I couldn't help but think about this woman I used to work with. I don't know how you did it but you described her perfectly. I think we may know the same people. And those hoop earrings are not just uncomfortable but they're stupid looking and dangerous. Great poem. :iconhihilove:
