A curse that imprisons you.
Preventing your true self from self expression.
Silencing your voice among crowds.

An enigma that overwhelms you.
Maintaining you in a state of uneasiness. Feigned strength veiling your weakness.

Ironically, it can be virtuous.
Granting you a gift as a listener.
An observer of everyday life.

It honors you with insight,
And with an appreciation for the little
Things in life that matter.

Shyness, my blessing and curse.
It suffocates me into searching for the
Voice that will soon speak.


The author's comments:
I guess the title says it all, I am shy! And sometimes I feel that it can get in the way of things but at the same time I realize that it pushes me into finding my voice. I hope you guys like it!

I like this alot. :)

I appreciate how you took a quality of yourself, and not only explained it beautifully - but criticized it to an extent and then made it your own, very positive thing. There's alot of depth to this. Great job!
