I am this introvert, born to take in only so much of your output at a time

I was never born to thrive on all that you crave

Why is it crucial to share the fast pace now in vogue, just so our wavelengths are the same?

What if this attention-span is all I can give?

Why do six-billion human beings all have to be “hip” “trendy” and “cool”?

Why do six-billion have to learn and teach at the same speed?

I am sure someone somewhere also must think what I think, feel what I feel

I am sure someone somewhere must be tired of this rushed ride

I enjoy the sun out on my own, whether or not I miss today’s hype

Spending all day just to mouse-click and to type would be a shame

I was born to walk out in the fresh-air of the planet Earth and breathe deep

Born to take in only so much of your output at a time

  1. I love this and am right there with you! Perhaps I am only mildly neurotypical? Thank you! Elaine Hall “coachE”

  2. @Elaine Hey, there’s probably a little neurotypical in all of us #smilesandhugs

  3. Love this column — love the others – but this one ….
    i often feel sick, poisoned, abused when I walk by a newstand — the headlines, the pics of celebrities, words like weight, diet, money, thin, success — aaahhhhh

    thank you !!!!

  4. @Marla Yeah, I get pretty tired of all the focus on “weight, diet, money, thin, success” etc myself. Good to see you, Marla, thanks for stopping by #smilesandhugs

  5. You have a way with words. I enjoy reading your poetry. I am an introvert as well, and you nailed it.

  6. What a graceful reminder that we should all walk through life at our own pace and thank you for visiting my blog today and liking so many posts. Have you read Quiet by Susan Cain? It’s a lovely book in praise of introverts

  7. Hi, thank you for liking one of my comments. Nice blog ☺️

  8. This is lovely. The world can be an overwhelming place. Those quiet moments in connection with ourselves are needed ❤. (Your is interesting and thought provoking, nicely done).

  9. You are definitely not the only one x

  10. Same here. Not sure if it’s because I’m introverted or because I’m autistic. Or both. Either way, you’re not alone. : )
