(campus tour poem)

Manufactured independence.
Leave just to prove to myself and
the inattentive others that
I can.
that I am not tied down.
Knowing it is a lie that I tell myself
A wish that I was introverted.

I can't tell if I love or hate being extrovert/introvert confused. Sometimes, it works, because acting like both feels right. Other times, acting like either feels wrong.

  1. I hope it's not cruel to add to the confusion- I'm definitely an introvert and I don't always like walking by myself.

    Is a desire to not to have to rely on others inherently introverted?
