inverse poem

gathered in a crowd

I do not want to be


I would rather be

amongst friends

amongst family

amongst the noise and bustle

you will not catch me

hiding in the corners

I am always

looking for excitement

dreading the thought of

being alone

    This read differently both ways, which has been a tricky one to execute properly for this challenge! “amongst the noise and bustle you will not catch me hiding in the corners” works really well both ways, completely flipping the narration. Well done👏
