    Im The "Quiet One"

    I'm a listener and an observer. People don't usually pay attention to me because I'm quiet but I always pay attention to them whether I want to or not.

    I notice everyone making the same mistakes I've made, I understand that these mistakes exist as a lesson and that I can only watch and encourage "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink". I see everyone on their different levels of consciousness and...

    The rumors at school have all started up again

    and seem to be getting worse... I pretend not to notice by either listening to music and reading a book but I still hear them all and hide the pain that some people would believe them. Over the years my face has become like a mask and my true feelings are hidden from the world...

    Just those looking deep recognize an observer,

    and people, specially my family,

    think that I'm naive and don't get what's going on around me. It's my choice not to react.

    I don't know how it happens; it just does!

    There was this English teacher that added me as a friend on Facebook, he was actually teaching me, then we became a little close cause I started chatting with him a lot and sending him the things I couldn't say to his face, cause I wanted to know if I was right about him. So...

    I'm good at listening to conversations.

    I do it without them noticing. I pretend I'm listening to music and zoning off but I lower the volume to listen. I've heard some pretty interesting things.

    all up in arms and and I spiral out of control with worry over certain things I notice. Yes, today I did indeed see you looking at jobs at the other side of the country. Truthfully... I don't want you to leave. Not really. I know it'd make more sense for you but... my inner...

    The people around me often misconstrue my

    shyness as my ignorance. They think I don't get it. Sometimes some people say hurtful things to get a reaction out of me but I stay tongue- tied. I notice their selfishness and manipulations but I don't say anything. I rather ignore than talk rudely to anyone.
