Set the mood

So I met his family and their friends,

and I had to pretend that I wasn’t at ends,

with who I am and who I should be,

What side of me should I let them see?

If I’m too sassy am I rude or mean,

What if I’m too quiet and I’m not really seen?

His sisters seen quiet so I should be too?

Honestly just sitting wondering what to do.

He sits on my left and passes me food,

The whole table is silent and that sets the mood.

They all seem so kind, as I figured they’d be,

Because he’s never been anything but kind to me.
