If I Were Different ~ Sajna Ramdin

If I should die, think only this of me.
I was different.
I didn't have naturally straight hair.
Or rosy cheeks.
My eyes never shined like the night sky.
My skin never glowed like gold.
My face was never painted with make up.
I was not a girly girl.
But I was not a tom boy either.
Nobody stared when I walked in.
I was different.
I liked old rock music.
I enjoyed looking at life from a different perspective.
I thought of myself as being a rebel.
My favourite colours are navy blue and grey.
I rather spend time having coffee with my grandparents
Than drinking and smoking with friends.
My favourite moments are those spent with dogs.
I was different.
And I was okay with that.
