It's not always easy being me
When I don't always fit in
It’s not always easy being me.
I can’t talk football; it doesn’t interest me.
Because of that, you push me aside.
Do you know my opinion still matters even though I don’t know who won on Sunday?
I am a nerd; these days they are cool,
But not where I work, not in this job that I do.
I hear the jibes you make about me.
I have thoughts on how to do things, but I’m an introvert,
I can’t yell over the top of you all.
You tell me I must speak up, but never tell others they should listen more.
I hear the negative and not the positive
At night I ruminate (even though you hate that word).
Black dog, fears, anxiety, feel like I’m drowning.
I try to learn to silence my own negative voice,
I try to build my confidence and speak up,
But it’s not always easy being me.
