Ignoring Shyness

There are times when I wished

My mouth did not stay silent

All the opportunities I missed

To say the words I really meant

My thoughts; cleave and divided

Should I stay quiet or say it out loud?

Kill my opinions and leave it dead?

Or say what’s on my mind — am I allowed?

Opening my mouth seemed hard at the moment

Like completely being submerged under the water

It’s as if I am facing a mighty opponent

A Spartan warrior ready to slaughter

When really, I just need to train myself more

To communicate effectively, and my shyness, I shall ignore

Ragtag Daily Prompt: opening

Fandango’s One Word Challenge: spartan

Three Things Challenge: silent, train, under
