Reenas Xploration challenge: Was that really me?

That girl

Who was painfully shy

Afraid of her own shadow

Afraid anyone would know

What was going on

What was happening to her

She didn’t dare breathe a word

To anyone

Kept everything to herself

Kept her feelings on a shelf

Tucked away

Out of sight

Fearing if anyone knew

They’d get a real fright

Was that really me?
