What will people think?

I want to try

But they’ll think I stink

What if they don’t like me?

That won’t be unlikely

I don’t take this lightly

Frankly I don’t wanna be judged, not even slightly

They’re looking, so slyly

I’m looking at my hands, shyly

I’m looking low, they’re looking highly

An opinion, isn’t fact

So why is it that

When I hear someone blurt it

I feel so hurt, it

Makes me feel deserted

I’m suddenly alerted

And go from extroverted

To introverted

Other people’s voices

Start to effect my choices

You’re so weird

Don’t grow out a beard

Sticks and stones

May break my bones

But words will never hurt me

That’s what we’ve been taught

But that’s really not

How it goes

So watch what flows

From your mouth and what you say

It affects someone more, than they display
