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
