Quiet Is Allowed

Twisting, twirling, mind is whirling
Trying to be part of a whole
Instead of alone in the crowd
Distractions, reactions, social infractions
Worried about mean remarks when
I’m more likely viewed behind shroud
Trying, defying, inwardly dying
Without someone else understanding
I flourish when quiet is allowed

(This is my October 7th contribution to Poem A Day October. I used the following writing prompt: Write a poem using the following 3 words: mean, crowd, and without.)
