When I admire the rolling hills,

you believe they are only more mountains to climb.

 

 

When I am inspired by a new challenge,

you are overwhelmed by the simple aspects of each day.

 

 

When your heart becomes heavy and your breathing labored,

take a deep breath, and begin to hold every thought captive.

 

 

When I am surrounded by others and thrive on the company,

you often retreat and are invigorated by the solace.

 

 

When I am delighted at the idea of travel and exploring,

you find the only outings necessary are for groceries or work.

 

 

I wonder if you and I will ever meet in between.

If we will ever have more in common than not.

 

 

When I am enthralled by an audience and take the stage,

you explore the back recesses of a coffee shop no one frequents.

 

 

When my mind wanders and I brainstorm about the future,

you find ways to dive into bed just so each day will end.

 

 

When your heart becomes heavy and your breath labored,

take a deep breath, and begin to hold every thought captive.

 

 

When I find myself enjoying friendships I never thought possible,

you draw your select few closer and avoid anyone new.

 

 

When I am filled with uncontainable joy and laugh freely,

you find unrestrained displays of emotion embarrassing.

 

 

I wonder if you and I will ever met in between.

If we will ever have more in common than not.
