I've Changed

I was no social butterfly,

Especially in front of audiences,

In that case I was kind of shy,

Now I have learned that there is no reason to be scared,

I've become more self-aware,

The moment someone I didn't know came up to speak to me,

I would only talk to them briefly,

But now I can actually hold a conversation,

Without getting nervous.


Was there a reason I was scared of meeting new poeple?

Yes, I was terrified of what they thought of me,

Then I realized that being terrified is what i shouldn't be.


One of the hardest things is speaking in front of your class,

But now, I stand up tall in front of the crowd,

And I speak,

I don't let anyone bring me down.
