Hesitating before you knock on a door...

Hesitating before you knock on a door
because you need a moment
to muster up the courage

Leaving the supermarket
because you couldn't find what you wanted
and asking someone is not an option

Feeling your heart nearly palpitate
when dialling a number
because your mum made you phone yourself

Rehearsing your response in your head
before raising your hand in class
to make sure you don't screw up

Staying silent when sitting with a group at lunch
because you never know
anything you say can be ridiculed
