I am contradictory

I am contradictory

I am shy, yet I want to be the center of attention

I am intelligent, yet I do nonsensical things

I am quiet, yet my thoughts are loud and clear

My insides are constantly at war

They fight between who I am and who I want to be

Which are obviously two completely different things

Am I fated for the rest of my life

To always be one thing while wanting to be another?

I am reserved, yet I throw caution to the wind

I am unsure, yet I act as if I know what’s best for others

I am observant, yet I get caught off guard at unplanned happenings

I am, probably forevermore,
