Green Apple // Blue Raspberry

I like green apple jolly ranchers, and I am different

I told them

I yearned for him to pick me out

To see me as separable

Identifiable

I did not enjoy the glorified blue raspberry

Hell no

I liked green apple

I was unique

But he-

Wanted the blue raspberry

 

I heard that individuality is dead

Creating your individual aesthetic is purely mediocre

He will always want the blue raspberry

And you

You will always be the green apple

This poem is about: 
Me
