Dear reserved little girl,

In a room full of kids with everything to say, you had nothing to say


Hiding in the corner didn’t make it easier growing up, since ,”But I’m shy” isn’t a valid excuse


After years of people assuming I was rude or stuck up because I didn’t have much to say, being shy was hard enough without people calling you out


I have now learned to work through my shyness, and I am unstoppable


This poem is about:
