When she hid her smile the world went dim,
And her beautiful mind eclipsed her charm.
The time is not as harsh as I had perceived,
Now knowing such a creature as her I’ve seen.
Troubled times may lie at my feet these days,
But hope is restored in a new way.
If I wasn’t such a coward I’d be able to say what I really want. But I’m naturally inhibited and very critical of myself. Being self-conscious is a curse for those that desire to express themselves sincerely. I feel anxious and that I was born in the wrong decade. I’m sorry I can’t be clear but I have to give my suspected fate the benefit of the doubt. Of course, I would be one to end with an apology. You really aren’t alone; empathy.
One of the most difficult things I will ever have to do is learn to cope with the realization that I am below average. Right now, it is too much for me to think on.
A coward is one who inhibits their actions by thinking of consequences. So it may be argued that a courageous person lives their life without much thought toward consequence. This logic may give credit to the proposal that intellectuals behave cowardly while the uncultured engage in opportunities of valor. There are certainly exceptions; people who do both and those that do neither.
No medium I am aware of is capable of recording what I itch to express. I haven’t met her yet. When speaking aloud, with all emotional faculties in full swing, can’t deliver the message, it’s time to cease effort.
