The Interpretation.

“One of the risks of being quiet is that other people can fill your silence with their own interpretation: You’re bored. You’re depressed. You’re shy. You’re stuck up. You’re judgmental.When others can’t read us, they write their own story- not always one we choose or that’s true to who we are.”

-Sophia Dembling’s The Introvert’s Way

They look at me, and they say

Loud, obnoxious, heading the wrong way

They think there’s no future to me

A waste of space, is all they can see.

It’s impossible not to give in to their opinions

It’s impossible not to listen in.

So I lock my lips, and my heart too

And believe every word of theirs is true.

Now silence is my misery, and solace

Silence is my family, and no less.

But they turn up their noses, and squint their eyes

They fill up the silence with all of their lies.

They say things about me that I didn’t know

Things I didn’t believe that I showed

I didn’t know that I gave off that vibe,

Didn’t this all start from their very jibes?

I do not want to pick any fights,

The reason I’m silent is not out of pride

I want to avoid trouble, is that too much to ask?

Is hearing a silence too much of a heavy task?

There’s nothing I can do to change who you are

But you sure did a lot, my mind is scarred.

No matter what I choose, you’ll judge me anyway

So I’ll do what I want, and say what I say.
