I do stress,
I might overthink things,
Maybe I’m anxious about something,
I can be mad or sad,
but the outside of me always looks calm.
There might be a lot of work that is due,
Or papers that are due.
I don’t freak out.
I might procrastinate,
But I still get the work done.
I want to make it seem that way.
I’m not loud,
or an extrovert.
I saw them,
being different to fit in,
and I’ve only thought about myself.
Can’t show I’m stressed.
Who would care?
I keep things to myself,
that is how I am,
I like it that way.
I’m not scared of showing who I am,
It just wouldn’t make a difference.
That is why I like to stay;
