Corona Created an Introvert

As I dress myself
I make sure to remember
The iron mask that I need
The one that hides it all
My true feelings
My anxiety and my pain
Like a lamb to the slaughter
This social interaction
With the outside world
A rapid drum beating
A panicked tune in my chest
Solitary silence my preference
But I dutifully do the expected
Taking great effort and strain
To occupy the same space
But if I settle my mind
Find the quiet in the noise
It is my greatest weapon
My biggest ally
Stronger that granite
When I must step out there
