One for the shy underdog

I should like to speak

My feet can’t bring me there

I should like to approach

Alas I find I did dare.

I should like to speak

My stubborn tongue is tied

I should like to greet

Alas, silence, I’m terrified.

I should like to speak

Yet I find myself dancing

I should like to sway ever more

Alas, away I’m going.

I should have spoken

All there was, a monologue

I could have been brave

This is one for the shy underdog

By,

N. Azlan, KL.
