Conventional Me

I do believe that I am suffering from a mild case of slight peculiarity

This I do find greatly distressing.

Indeed, far from being vaguely odd,

It merely tars me with the same characteristics as that of the mundane multitude,

Whom are the normality.


A greater insult I could not possibly fathom.

Do not, I beg you, take this as an offence.

It’s merely that I had always revelled in the delightful assurance that I was what they call, “unique”, “individual, “abnormal”.


But to learn that this solid truth which I once held so dear is no more than a fallacy?

That is an incredible blow!

How can I ever again look down on the popular masses?

How can I ever again look the truly strange in the eye?

Is there even a faint glimmer of hope?


Alas, my last resort.

I shall endeavour to be what people refer to as

“dull”, “boring” “ordinary”

Yet this prospect fills me with much intense excitement!


Oh, and it is a struggle to contain!

However, contain it I must. So, as not to shatter the illusion;

The thin veil that separates me from the sheeps of the world.


Please welcome the incredible,

The amazing,

The most utterly wonderful,

Brand spanking new,

Conventional me!

  1. The first line sounds like a Victorian malady. May your peculiarity never be medically or in another way overcome. Toward that, I celebrate your “incredible” and “amazing” conventionality–because I think your distinctiveness might change conventions themselves. One can only hope. Thanks!


    1. Ha, ha ha! Juxtaposition and irony. My ex said I am a combination of ultra modern and ultra conservative (two extremes always plus other maladies) when it suits my purpose(s). Good thing I never believe him. Anyway, every person is never just one thing I am sure.


Be memorable. Say something unforgettable.
