Introvert

Don't worry about me
I am content to observe
I am peaceful
until you disturb me
with your efforts of inclusion.
Persistence will not
pay you this time--
you are pushing me away.
What you offer as a carrot
is a stick to me.
It does not bring me peace
or lead me to a good place.
Increasing my patience,
I wait you out
and gain
freedom from anxiety.

Marsha Salerno July 2007
