Extravert or Introvert?

A stranger my mother never met
For soon acquainted they would get.
And my mother-in-law, as well,
Something at which both did excel.

Since this is not the way I am,
I wished I could be more like them.
I used to feel somewhat ashamed.
Until to me it was explained.

God personalities does give
And true to it I should live.
Still, there are ways we each should change
And certain traits rearrange.

Outgoing means going out of
Our way to show others Godís love.
It is a friendly thing to smile,
Thinking of others, all the while.

The Golden Rule is always good
And likely to be understood.
To practice being sociable,
Willing, we should be, and able.

Extraverts may need change too.
To listen more is good to do.
God will help us to be our best
When our love for Him is expressed.

Now, with Godís help, Iím glad to say,
Iím more out going than yesterday.
Everything He asks, I can do.
He can even make me want to.

Very creative take on the topic. Nice to see poetry.
Good luck.

I adore poetry! To me this poem portrays how there is a balance to be found in our traits as your title suggests! It is such pressure when people seem to think one must be extroverted to witness! How many writers are truly extroverted-god uses us all-DIFFERENTLY:)

Well written poem. I believe God created us all with different gifts, that all work together to further the Kingdom of Heaven.

Speaking and listening are both important qualities.

love this poem. I like how you said that extrovert and introvert can both learn things from each other and that we all have unique personalities which can be used for the Lord.


Keep rhyming and writing. I love poetry :)
