I am not one of the shy ones,
I am simply quiet.
I only speak when
I have something worth saying.
I would appreciate if you listened
to what I actually say,
Rather than what
you want me to say.
Is that so wrong to ask?

I can relate to this so much. Seems like no matter what one says or who one tries to act like, it's simply never good enough for anyone else. Anyway, great work!
I have to agree with this. When I speak, people shape my words into what they want to hear and I'm never sure if they actually understand. This is a poem that's exactly how I feel.
Awesome poem. can relate to it.
no, nothing wrong in that at all
