Introvert On Stage

Yesterday and the early part of this morning reminded me of a freewrite I wrote two years ago called, Introvert On Stage. Have you ever found yourself feeling as if:

Someone opened the curtain,
pushed you to the fore.
A thousand eyes watching,
applauding for more;
they want an encore
of you–yes, you.

‘Cause “the world’s a stage,”
and you’re the act.
Smile and wave,
get your lines right.
Introvert on stage…
camouflaged stage fright.


Are you an introvert or an extrovert? How? Why?
