There’s a bit of both in me,
A bit of both in all of us.
Both of what? you ask,
Both of the extremes, I say.
I am an extrovert at times, but look forward to solitude too;
Enjoying time with myself and mine, in my own small world.
There is music in my home, songs constantly churned out from my beloved Radio;
But there are also days when all I want is to feel the peace and serenity of silence.
There are days when I dress to the hilt and dance, eat ,enjoy at a gathering;
Then there are times when I find it frivolous, a wastage of time.
I sometimes love to play the clown, making my family and friends laugh;
Then there are the times when all I want to do is be alone.
Sometimes, I am civil to a people who have been unkind to me and others;
But too many times, I want to go at them full throttle and beat the devil out of them.
There are more of ” both” inside me,
Just like they are in you.
