I am quiet because I chose to be

No I do not have an attitude  

No, I am not having a bad day

Well maybe I am, but what’s it to you?

So you can say, “She seems aggravated?”

Maybe I am, what’s it to you?

Leave me alone, okay?

Why can’t I show you the unspeakable future?

I Am. Alright.

I do not have the need to flap my lips twenty-four seven.

Nor do I care to have a full blown conversation.

Just leave me alone, okay?

I like being in my mind at times.

You don’t need to know what I’m thinking all the time.


How can I perceive a situation so differently?

Is it because of how our brain process information?
