"A fool knows himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool." ~William Shakespeare~


I am shy and easily amused,

I wonder how Olympians become so accomplished at what they do,

I hear the thud of an arrow in the distance,

I see a gold medal flash before my eyes,

I aspire to be in the Olympics,

I am shy and easily amused.



I imagine I am a concert pianist,

I feel thrilled when I memorize a piece on the piano,

I touch the cool ivory keys,

And worry that I will make a mistake during my next performance,

I weep when I play a gloomy song,

I am shy and easily amused.



I understand how to be creative,

I say I can do anything

I dream I am a famous publisher, known by everyone in the world,

I attempt to write my own books,

And trust that someday I will be successful,

I am shy and easily amused.
