One for all the introverts out there…
I’m one of those,
quite a strong one at that.
There’s a comfort in my own space,
I’m quiet, reserved and shy.
Crowds have an impact on my anxiety,
struggle with some social scenes.
I need to be able to withdraw,
just to refocus my thoughts.
Please don’t put me in a box though,
attach a judgement too soon.
My introversion is a quality,
that doesn’t preclude me from life.
There’s nothing an extrovert does,
that I can’t also enjoy.
It’s just about managing energy,
which works in opposite ways.
So invite me along to your party,
give me that leadership role.
Value the difference I bring,
and always let me be me.
