I had always been an introvert
Never had I spoken out when I saw right or wrong
Even when I saw others hurt
"The easy life is what I long"
I didn't have many friends when I first arrived
To junior high
"Join a club! Be involved!" I heard
But I never answered
And so junior high was a blur of loneliness
When I blinked once or twice I was a freshman
"Join a club! Be involved!" Was drilled into my head again
And again I hadn't spoken out
First freshman, then sophmore, I wasted away in highschool
Thinking, "Eventually I'll find something to do."
"Why are you never involved?" was asked of me
I just repeated, "Eventually, eventually"
Soon eneough I realized the voice asking those questions
that penetrated my dome
were none other than my own
"Be involved, join a club
Express yourself doing something you love
Create ever important relationships
and ever lasting memories"
So listen to me now that I am speaking out
And hear the things I wish my past self wanted to know about
Friends, memories, relationship rich and wealth
And create those bonds I would have long ago
Had I heard myself
