Introvert-Extrovert

Gemma Shingles

Introvert 

I am stood in a room full of people, 

all of which I don’t know. 

I feel out of place, out of my depths, 

mentally drained from pretending. 

Pretending to smile, to be happy, 

but really, I’m not. 

I am speaking but no one is listening. 

I am here but no one is looking. 

I feel invisible.

Extrovert 

I’m stood in a room full of people, 

all of which I know. 

I feel confident and comfortable, 

ready to have fun. 

I’m smiling, I’m happy, 

I’m in my element. 

I’m speaking and everyone is listening. 

I’m here and everyone knows. 

I feel invincible.
