Imagine for once, if you please,
A world where I am at ease,
For when I see other people I freeze.
My insides curl,
Feel like I'll hurl,
And sometimes the world starts to swirl...
This intense awkward feeling
Has got my mind reeling,
For I've found in my dealings
With people, I get scared
Stand stoic and get mentally prepared,
But speak first, I've never dared.
I'll speak to you in my head,
But this intense feeling of dread
Will stop me dead
The instant I try to speak aloud.
I simply shroud
The pain in which I drown.
I feel a complete clown,
So through the world I go, eyes always cast down.
