Moving Past Shyness


Truth is I was extremely shy

And I really didn’t know why

Perhaps it was the thought of being judged

Or feeling belittled in this world


A rabbit in the wild

Wishing she was still a child

In the days where things were simpler

And it was actually acceptable to be timid


Each and every day

I would be the lead role in a play

Obsessing over my actions

Making sure everything went right


For if not, fear would take over

And I would plunge undercover

Until the train full of dark thoughts

made its next stop


But I have learned to move past this

No more caring what others think

Cuz the only judge there should be

Is the judger that’s in me
