"Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are.”

The words are at the tip of my tongue.
I desire to speak, to express myself.
But, my strength is beneath me.
Instead, I slip away mysteriously.

I move silently across the room.
My lips in movement but never making any sound.
I'm used to stares and the wondering why, this girl won't ever speak.
As if they don't know I'm driven with fear.

I watch as they pass me by.
I'm dying for company but I stay a mystery.
I'm in my own little world reading a book.
Every now and then I'll see someone stop and look.

I try to open my mouth but as I do something stops me.
I'm drowning in the river of fear.
My mind racing of something to say.
To hide my shame I pretend to have lost my pencil.

It seems like a battle.
Me, myself and I fighting to face my fears.
I close my eyes and finally the words escape me.
From this day on, I swear, I won't be afraid to fly.

All my life I have struggled with shyness but one day I decided to not let it get in my way but embrace it. Everyone is shy at times-others can it hide more.

Art is the way to lose yourself and find yourself at the same time.

I wish people could see Through my broken smile And look behind my glasses In my eyes which longed to communicate What I couldn't through words I wish they stopped being curious about my being aloof I wish they could just feel the longing in my heart Which yearned for someone who could share its loneliness with. But I never had my wishes fulfilled. So I gathered strength and smiled at a girl. And we've been best friends ever since then. If I knew that a smile could break hardest of walls!

This poem seriously describes how I used to be... but then I found Speech Team and I've never went back... :) I love it.

Check out my work if you have the chance?
