In my shyness . . .
At times I retreat to 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 sealed lips will not release them.

In my shyness . . .
The words I do speak will at times be jumbled,
And I'll feel worse for having spoken them.

In my shyness . . .
I will be viewed as "stuck up" and 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.

And despite my shyness . . .
I may put on a good "front,"
Disguising my innermost insecurities.

Despite my shyness . . .
A select few will manage to penetrate these "walls,"
With the sharing of time and the evolving of trust.

My shyness . . .
Frequently unrecognized, seldom understood--
A shackle, a haven, a veil.

genetic research moves
in twists and turns
and the latest news is:
DR DYNAMIC BOLD FINDS
GENE FOR SHYNESS


"With this latest discovery,"
Dr Bold announced
"we can eliminate shyness"

"Why has it taken Science,"
our team asked Dr Bold
"so long to discover this gene for shyness?"

"We would have found it earlier,"
said Dr Bold
*"but it was hiding behind three other genes"

I SEE THE SHYNESS IN HER

I SEE HER HEART HIDING INSIDE

WHY SHE HIDES IT I DO NOT KNOW

I REALLY WANT HER TO BE MINE BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET PASS THE SHY

SO HOW DO I GET PASS THE SHYNESS

I HOLD MY HEAD UP TO THE SKY AND ASK GOD

WILL SHE BE MINE ?

AS THE WIND MOVES THE TREES HEAR MY ANSWER.                                                

HE SAID SOMETHING GREAT IS COMING FOR THE TW0.

HE LEFT ME WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE AND A DREAM OF HER IN IT.
DON'T LET THE SHYNESS GET TO YOU
