They Assume

They assume I am correct
For rarely am I wrong
They assume I am weak
For rarely need I be strong

They assume I am intelligent
For rarely am I incorrect
They assume I am passive
For rarely need I be direct

They assume I am good
For rarely am I bad
They assume I am envious
For rarely have I had

They assume I wish I was
For rarely have I been
They assume I will lose
For rarely do I win

They assume they'll never know me
This I know is true for sure
For rarely would I speak to someone
Who assumes so many things before

Sometimes the words are a bit forced and seem awkward, but a great poem overall. Keep writing!
