Head high. Don't blink.

Memories come back to haunt
Embarrassments, insecurities
Stare them down and banish them
They have no power anymore

Head held high, all day long
When people laugh, ignore them all
Inwardly weak, outwardly strong
(This is taking way too long!)
Must hold on 'til shyness...gone!

A/N: Before you tell me that bravado alone will not conquer shyness...I know. But it will go a heck of a long way towards making it livable.
