Are You?

Are you scared people will misunderstand you? Are you terrified of offending them? Are you worried they’ll think you’re weird, an arsehole, a dithering imbecile, an arrogant gasbag? Do your hands shake and your words come out all goofy even though you are hot shit in your own head? Do you ever fail to make that real human connection because you are too busy being cool?

Do you ever think of something genuinely funny to say when you’re stood round with a group of people, but keep it to yourself because it’s easier that way? Because you want to stay hidden. Do you ever hear a torrent of words come vaulting out of your own mouth like a team of jacked up flying trapeze artists, and wish you would…

                                                                                              just

                                                                                                                  shut

                                                                                                                                up

                                                                                                                                      …?

Me too.
