SHY GUY

Silent wallflower,
barely empowered
to rise above the current;
always prey to the undertow.
Wouldn’t you know the escape
so prescribed hides in the words
chosen to become the battering ram
for any debilitating aftermath. Standing
more sure of foot and confident, triumphant
and courageous; wielding an outrageous sword.
Expressive Excalibur! Strident; leading with
little chance to lose your bravado,
believing that sure and steady wins
the moment at hand, away from the corner
to be surrounded by those who admire.
Strength in supportive numbers.
