Title – The Way of the Introvert
Please don’t take it the wrong way,
When I say I don’t want to come.
Your company’s fine,
But if there’s nine,
I won’t be having any fun.
It’s not about you,
And it’s not about them,
Honestly, it’s all about me;
To be alone,
With just one or two,
Is my ideal company.
I watch from the sidelines,
Have you noticed,
How I don’t exactly take part?
Yes, I’ll speak when spoken to,
But a conversation I won’t start.
There’s too much expectation,
“Why don’t you like being in a group?!”
The fact that you ask
Means you don’t understand;
I’m happy not being in the loop.
Conversing with one or two people,
Is something I truly cherish.
It’s nearly as sweet as the nectar of I,
What an introvert’s wired to relish.
