Inside Shy – Written June 2010 (Aged 35)

Inside Shy

not anti social
but inside shy
but still able to cry
and not without romance
self conscious,
yet able to dance
speaking up,
but often,
opting out
a silence –
still has the ability to shout
holds hands easily with opinion
but their happiness
may not be complete
for the truth of a person
they may never meet

James Garratt – June 2010
