Once my name was shyness,
silence and lots of doubt.
With uncertainty flowing from me,
like steam from a kettle’s spout.

I never knew my place,
whether it be here or over there.
Just wanting someone to rely on,
someone to say “I care”.

But after lots of soul searching,
I think I’ve found some change.
I’m ready to shed my skin,
and take on a brand new name.

Something that embodies
everything I’m now about.
I’m ready to show the world,
it’s time for me to break out.

To be myself forever,
my story will be told.
Never again uncertain,
my brand new name is Bold.
