    Poem: Introvert

    Silhouette of a Girl

    Introverts are always misjudged

    People think that we hate everyone

    Or that we are just depressed inside

    It never crossed their mind that we just might not want to socialize

    I feel like being an introvert is more complicated than being an extrovert

    Because you can’t explain it

    Sometimes I feel like I can socialize for hours 

    Then I actually have to socialize

    My family calls it a battery

    When the battery is full you can socialize

    When it is low you really just want to go home

    And it is hard sometimes

    When you have friends who don’t get what it is like

    I love my friends

    I do it’s just that…

    They expect me to be happy and smiley all the time

    And they expect me to wanted to know everyone’s birthdays and names

    I don’t!

    I couldn’t care less about those people

    And it isn’t just the people you know

    It is the world

    They show they bright and happy people as the good guys

    And they closed off and antisocial people as the bad guys

    The world wants everyone to know everyone

    But not everyone is like that

    And we don’t have to be

    We can have our me time

    We can just stay inside all day if we want

    And if people don’t like that

    Or if they don’t understand it 

    Then that is their problem not ours

    Because we shouldn’t have to change ourselves for others

    We shouldn’t have to do things that we don’t find fun

    We should be able to be our introverted selves

    And people should learn to love us for it
