    Pardon me if I appear a bit nervous
    You see
    I'm giving you my soul
    Not an easy thing to do

    As long as my mouth is shut
    You can only guess what I'm about
    You can look at me
    Do a financial tabulation of my clothes
    See the car I arrived in
    Is there intelligence in my eyes?
    Without saying a word I can fool you all so easily
    But there will be no games
    No make believe
    I'm about to give you me
    Me and my truth
    As I know it to be

    Bear with me
    It might take a minute
    For my soul is quite shy
    Not wanting to be viewed by strangers
    Or anyone else

    Silly thing my soul
    Wanting to be known
    Through written words
    While not being seen
    Its messenger an enigma
    Curiosity seekers
    Not welcome past the front door
    But keep knocking
    My soul likes the sound
    Sooner or later
    It will come around

    Be patient
    Souls hold on the tightest
    Souls hold on the longest
    But when they let go....

    BE

    only if...

    people understood
    the importance of one's soul
    and what an honor it
    is...
    to receive it...

    shine the light, poet~

    Heartbeat...

    Very nice poem...
    as a shy person I can relate
    I use my poetry as an
    introduction to me....has always
    been easier to write then speak...
    if someone has a care, they will see
    deeper......into the real you..

    ps...I don't think its silly at all.
