Shy Boy

Don’t lose the fire in your soul
Sweet, shy boy
Don’t lose perspective or control
Don’t destroy
The beauty of your vision here
The crystallising of your years
Don’t dwell in darkness
Nor in fear
Shy boy

Don’t lose the beauty of your mind
Quick, clever boy
And all the elements you find
Please employ
Your artistry could be your cure
To make from debris something pure
Don’t make your games
To just endure
Clever boy

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
