598 Eyes & Ears


To others who am I?

My mouth opens but sound doesnt come out

Nothing is heard

Scared to speak out

Scared to ask questions

In a room full of 300 other students

I feel belittled

For a fear of being judged

I dont ask Questions, I dont talk to others

If I ask a question all other 598 eyes will be on me

598 ears will be listening

What will they think or say?

Inside Im full of ideas and friendliness

Inside I have a bubbly personality only few witness 

To the 299 others in my class

I am the one no one will know, basically invisible

Never hearing my voice

Afraid of rejection and judgement 

I keep to myself



Need to talk?
