Paradox, an introvert’s poem

Give me silence.
Stillness.
Empty space.
Give me paradox,

that in the vacuum,
you create energy,
power, invisible and undeniable,
infuses you.

Give me the void,
and I will create the world
with virility to spare.

About this poem

I have had a little over two weeks of constant crowds. A convention. Traveling. Vacation Bible School. Church services. I am peopled out.

Yeah, I’m an introvert and mostly I make it work for me. Mostly, but not the past two weeks. Time to recharge.

  1. Peopled out – I like that! I, too, am an introvert and need alone time to recharge. I’ve always said that “I have exceeded my other people quota” but I like “peopled out” better. Simple. To the point. 😊
