Favorite Quote:
Jazz speaks for life. The Blues tell the story of life's difficulties, and if you think for a moment, you will realize that they take the hardest realities of life and put them into music, only to come out with some new hope or sense of triumph. MLK

I'm a shy girl


sit in the back of the room,


I dont to talk to people much,

if I do..


I expect to not be heard

I hear all these conversations

Surrounding me in the melody that is life

Yet, I can't contribute, 

If I'm called on

I cower mentally

Afraid to speak up

Afraid to say something wrong

Afraid to accidentally step out of line

Too afraid to get up to throw a paper away

Will they stare?

But not with you.

You release me somehow

From that prison 

That locks me in isolation

You beckon me out

Like a starved animal in need

Need of affection it's never gotten

To feel like it matters, 

To feel like there's a reason for its existance

Your that compassionate owner

That picks out the touhest to help

That nursed me to a way I can live with

To nurse me away from the destructive addiction

To lure me into trusting you 

With every fiber of my being

To lure me to loving you

To throw my caution to the wind

In hopes I'll finally be noticed

Finally not judged

Finally free from that cage

With you
