My friend S is an enigma.
He is so smart, yet he stresses when he doesn't understand a small detail.
He is so nice to talk to, but he will never give his personal opinion.
He is so quiet, yet when it comes to money, he can't help but say "how much is that?"
He is so reluctant to speak up but always seems to utter "sure umm okay."
He is so funny, yet he always seems to make the joke unintentionally.
He is so friendly, yet he struggles to communicate his true feelings.
He is so social on WeChat, yet when we meet IRL, he doesn't have anything to say.
He is so shy, but yet he asked me to take photos of him smiling. I know deep inside he is happy.
He is so school focused, yet he takes his day to help me write this poem about him.
He is so artistic, yet when I ask him for a picture, he says "ahhh, I don't know if any is great."
He is so analytical, but yet when I ask him is this poem okay, he says "um sure it's fine I guess."
He is so helpful as he sits beside me when I write this, yet when I ask him for his thoughts,
He once again replies "umm sure its okay."
My friend S is a collection of conundrums, yet I know in my mind he will always have a place, and I only hope for the same.
