In My Shyness

by Crystal Nelson
(Georgia, USA)

In my shyness...
■at times i retreat into my "shell"
■clinging to the security of being alone

in my shyness...
■ I may attempt to merge with my surroundings
■to be ignored unnoticed a silent voice rarely heard

in my shyness...
■I can feel completely alone
■although surrounded by people

in my shyness...
■I'm perceived as having a padlocked soul
■and few try to gain entry into my realm

in my shyness...
■few will dare venture to really know me
■to hear my quiet voice or to really try to understand

in my shyness...
■I can have a myriad of words to say
■yet my lips will not release them

in my shyness...
■I will be viewed as stuck up or unfriendly
■labeled by the presumption of a troubled past

yet despite my shyness....
■I will at times emerge from my shell
■and you may catch a glimpse of who I am
