Helps my stay at home haiku.
I’m in my bubble.
Headphones, a notepad, and pen,
Making use of time.
stay at home haiku
or something like that 🤣
Introverts be like:
Nah, I have plans.
Sorry, I can’t hang out with you.
And by plans, we mean:
Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and/or Hulu.
Please dont judge me,
I find solace in the solitude;
BOOKS ARE MY BEST FRIENDS.
That is unless you too know THE BOOK WAS BETTER!
Then and only then, can ye #quietly be considered a friend.
And by quietly, I mean:
An occasional nod.
And should you ever attempt to force communication,
I will be forced to channel my inner Virgo and tune you out.
My poems are not poems…
this for the quiet ones that understand loud and clear what I am talking about. 🤓

Thanksgiving begets introvert problems slash holiday blues.
I don’t wanna small talk
Plus everybody can’t cook;
Yeah I said it, start spreading the news.
😳 Please don’t invite me,
🤨 The way my stomach setup,
🤔 I don’t wanna be rude…
I come from a different culture
and I’m fresh off the 21-Day Veggie Challenge,
I can’t eat that food.
The Thanksgiving holiday got me over here practicing like:
🤦♂️ sorry, I don’t do potlucks!
👀 No Thank You, I just ate.
Introversion got me ducking berates of “Who made the potato salad?”
“I know you didn’t just renege?!”
and “Let me fix you a plate?!”
The way my tastebuds setup,
I don’t wanna know nothing ’bout no crunchy macaroni,
No zing of flavor,
Or undercooked food.
If the cook ain’t got full lips, Elbow fat, or black girl hips,
I’m not in the mood.
‘Tis not the season for something new,
If I gotta suffer through small talk,
I need soul food. 🤓

FIND YOUR TRIBE:
Don’t hide the madness,
Find your tribe and love them hard;
For they are the ones that help you find your way home.
Peace to the beautiful souls that understand my silence;
For they are the ones that know the difference between being lonely and being alone.
Special thanks to the Introverts and the Empaths that understand my introvert problems like:
Why do I feel more lonesome when more people are around?
Why do I find it hard so to stfu when people I enjoy come around?
What causes a person to feel more alone in a room full of people than when they’re actually alone?
Why is small talk such a big deal?
Why do I prefer self-talk more than talking on the phone?
Is it me, or do the I CAME I SAW I LEFT EARLY memes really hit home?
Can the hashtag stay close to people who feel like sunlight credo illuminate the path back home?
Like a flower leans towards the sun, we tend to gravitate towards an inner glow.
My poems are not poems…
And I say that to say:
I’m not antisocial, I can’t fake being social;
If it entails fake smiling,
I probably won’t go.
I wrote this piece for those that know:
I’m not saying I don’t want the invite,
I still want the invite;
Although, we all know, I’m not gonna go.
I’m still a social being, at least.
Yeah, I disappear at times; it’s my thing.
I just like being at peace.
I’m close to very few people,
But those few people mean everything to me;
In case you didn’t know.
Happiness is an inside job
Yet you need to surround yourself with people that are good for your mental health.
Even an Introvert exhibits extroverted tendencies in an environment that allows one the comfort of being one’s self.
Normal is a myth and conformance is bad for one’s health;
If nothing else:

My poems are not poems,
Don’t get it confused, these ain’t just lyrics.
I convene with the ancient spirits.
Wisdom cries out to the Streets,
If you quiet the noise, you could hear it.
When you mind your own, you’ll find the Divine in your own.
You could search in temples, churches, and mosques and never find your way home.
When you walk in faith rather than sight, you commence to see God’s presence in everything.
If you can comprehend the transcendental vibes, you know ENERGY IS EVERYTHING.
If you don’t recognize the power within, I suggest you become acquainted with the arts.
I’m anticipating, you’ll see the correlation between creation and art.
If you can’t see the God matter between your temples, you’ll never discover the Divine that dwells in your heart.
I suggest you act on reason not emotion,
Why do you think the brain is above the heart?
But don’t mind me,
You were given one mouth and two ears and most tend to listen not.
What do I know?!
I’m just an introvert in a world that talks a lot.
Nah, I’m not antisocial,
SELF-TALK is the best talk,
I tend to talk to God a lot.

Sometimes you need to be alone to quiet the noise.
ENERGY IS EVERYTHING…
in order to do thee impossible and see thee unseen,
you must understand the power of quietude and not being seen.
I mean; the sun is brilliant by day,
yet at night the the stars are seen…
I guess you can say, sometimes, I like people
and then there’s those times when I refrain from all contact with human beings.
The vibe never lies…
if I catch the slightest hint of the wrong vibe, I’m done with people.
Yet still in all
when I need time to replenish, it has nothing to do with people.
Being an introvert is not what you think,
sometimes I need silence to hear the divine energy,
sometimes I just need to think.
I’m responsible for both the energy that I give
and the energy that I accept;
therefore, sometimes I need to be alone to get to know my “self.”
Sometimes, I don’t answer my phone cause I’m busy engaging my higher self.
Sometimes, I prefer books over people;
and that has nothing to do with my Myers Briggs type having 6% feelings.
Sometimes, I prefer books over people;
only because erudition and intuition are premonitions that replenish the higher self.
In retrospect, I’m 50% introvert with extrovert tendencies.
If Mindfulness and Stillness teach you how to welcome extraordinary energy;
in a world where people seek attention like food,
solitude is my natural propensity.
I find solace in the solitude,
nothing makes me feel more alone than small talk in large gatherings;
lonely is the only company when you’re in the company of those that don’t match your energy.
This is dedicated to those that take time to replenish.
If calm is a superpower, introversion is not a blemish.
This concludes my ode to replenish;
I had my dose of people for the day, I’m going to replenish. 🤓

life & times of the quiet
ones – in retrospect
I’m not an introvert – nah,
I enjoy silence.
What are you reading?!
The book means don’t talk to me;
said the blank stare – smile.
Do you like books, more
than people?! Uhh – Yeah! All of
my friends do too – ha.
Yall are so quiet!
We did not think you noticed,
with all your talking.
Shut up! I can’t think!
We tuned you out, long ago;
you talk way too much!
I’m a self-soother…
I need to go recharge, now;
silence is golden.
