Timid Soul's Liberation: A Poem
Shy and vulnerable to its very core
nudity of soul in a life mission to hide
behind opaque veil, stuck at back door
in its highest moments scared to feel pride.
Timid soul's biggest of all fears
is about his masks slipping down
exposing the puddle of secret tears
making him end up as a pathetic clown.
But brewing in that soul is rebellion of a kind
like a giant stuffed in bottle drowning in tears
now breaking out from prison with a new mind
greeted by life with many ovations and cheers.
Stretching painfully smiling with joy
sensing his likeness to his real looks
he starts a solo dance like a playful boy
seeing lovely faces in those scary spooks.
It takes a deep soul with treasure inside
and almost paralyzed by his self-doubt
to be able to live life in persistent hide.
But someone deeper to find a way out.
