Am I lonely, or am I sad
My head keeps telling me I’m just bad
An invite by zoom, or, dare I try a room
I’m so scared to try, my brain might fry
I look for an uplift, to lighten my mind shift
Will they show some care, and just be fair
One day I venture, my intrepid adventure.
So I’ll sit down and ask, as my heart beats so fast
When, why and how do I show, as I get up to go
I step to the door, eyes fixed to the floor
I muster a grin, steady my wobbly chin
My posture is tight, yet I’m walking with fight
To make that impression, a fixed, false expression.
