Extrovert in company, Introvert in isolation Not ambivalent, but decisive, in all my action Yes, play it by ear, happy in my inxtroversion Happy I’ll balance out all the other versions

I can fit either/or, but kinda fit both, so more? Not me, all life and soul, all predictable bore I observe, then react, grounded, before I soar Happy with attention, happy to share the floor

I can be either/or, but neither is at my core Chat is insincere, but I won’t walk out the door Prefer real talk stuff, but trust, I don’t keep score I like my friends about, but always room for more

Call me a confident introvert, whatever you want Call me a soft extrovert, write it in your own font On the fence, try ambivert, words, yours to flaunt Don’t care, I’m inxtrovert, won’t rise to your taunt

(Loot, 2018)
