Why Should I?

Why should I?
I wont.

I will have a civil wedding instead,
Five in a room to make it official.
I will take her to a quiet honey moon,
And bring her to our own home.

Before you judge, answer me.
My Dad's not a millionare,
And my short time goal ain't any near being one,
Why should I hire cars,
When I still live in rentals?
Why should I fly her to the altar,
When my meals are dependant on my salary?
Why should I buy a hundred dollar cake,
When by mid next month I will be begging for loans?
Why should my friends cough money,
When they won't taste the fruits of my wedding.
Why should people talk about the limo for weeks,
When I will be angry that the tout went with my change?
Why should her friends envy the selfies,
While she rants about my empty ego in my house?

I won't hold an expensive wedding,
Not yet,
Why should I?
Its a norm yes,
But not to me,
Just like shoes were a norm in primary school,
But not for me,
Just like TV was a norm to my mates' kidhood,
But not for me,
Just like Christmas gifts were a norm to my mates' kidhood,
But not for me.

I won't, why should I?
