when the cynic in me

takes a day off,

the optimist in me

comes out to hang out,

but the realist in me

has my inner introvert

on the speed dial;

the idealist in me

rolls eyes and storms out!


“Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces together.”

Ray Bradbury

  1. Hahaha. That’s awesome, Aaysid. I love this, as it speaks and feels very well to the human experience of being extroverted, introverted, and, in-between; living along this continuum of experience, which over time as we age and develop, changes and iterates. Well done!😊
