Today I feel like hiding

Updated on August 24, 2012

Today I feel like hiding

I’m feeling insecure

I don’t know what I’m doing here

I’m nervous to the core

Today I feel like running

I’m afraid to talk to you

I’m sure you’ll think I’m slightly strange

I haven’t got a clue

I hope that you won’t notice me

Or think that I’m a snob

I don’t think that I’m better

I just feel like I’m a slob

I think I may say something dumb

I might forget your name

I won’t remember what you said

My comments will be lame

I’ll answer the wrong question

I won’t know what you mean

My replies will come out all mixed up

I might even turn green

I wish that I were somewhere else

I do not want to stay

I’d rather go off by myself

Than think of something to say

But I must try and do my best

Relax and give a smile

Then maybe it won’t be so bad

I may enjoy this trial

Being shy is not much fun

I hope tomorrow is better

I’m glad that I’m not always like this

It’s hard to be so fettered

      Thank you teacherjoe, I am terrible with names and faces. I once met a wonderful woman at a book club, (thought it was the first time) saw her two days later and had no recollection of her at all...the worst part, her daughter was in my sunday school class and I had been seeing her every week for months. I felt so bad!

      Hi April.

      I am very bad for remembering names and it can be very embarassing. One time when introducing my brother I forgot his name. We all suffer the proverbial foot in the mouth at times. I feel very unfomortable in crowds. People do not believe it but I too am shy. it is okay.

      This is a very beuatiful poem from your heart.

      Good girl.

      God bless you.

      There are days like the one you portray here, and then there are the really great ones, which make the "run away days" running forward ones. This was well done and deserves about 500 more followers!
