The Wishes of an Introvert

I sometimes wish, I truly wish,
That I was rather loud

And loved attention, company,
And being in a crowd

I wish that those who saw me were
Excited and impressed

Instead of seeing someone they
Can tolerate, at best

  2. I would talk with touch and body language or maybe write. i pretend to be extroverted and bubbly because that is what our society demands-i hate it. I would love a silent world of understanding and acceptance.
