Will it stick with the girl’s name forever?” By: Latasha Briscoe © 3/15/99 The girl sometimes wondered if she has a chance of ever being outspoken to all. Acting so isolated from people who try to communicate with her and being so quiet to all movements, verbal communication, and non. She wished her mouth could spill out so many free words to any human who came across her path. How can people be so shy of communicating..........why me? she wondered. That was the question she asked herself day to day. Shyness is a piece of the young girl’s soul that will probably stick with her name forever. Like a disease, a virus she wishes she never had. It felt like it would never go away. Maybe....she wondered. Maybe the reason she’s so shy is because of her self confidence. Beauty meant a lot to her. Always, always looked into a frame of reflecting glass and she saw a high pitch of ugliness come about. The frame should break into a million and one pieces she thought. Her self confidence is wrapped into a ball all crumbled up. The girl wished there was something to boost her self esteem but the luck she had wasn’t going to happen. Ugly is an high effect on her soul covered with cries of help and it was messing up her mind. Messing with her confidence and esteem. If she had any confidence and a esteem there would be no such thing as shyness associating with her feelings. How can she boost her confidence? she wondered. She tried to believe she could boost her confidence by being herself, the good natured, funny, goofy person that she is towards anyone who stands before her. Maybe she could care less what anyone else thought of her and just be her pure self but something was keeping her from doing so. She wondered that if she stopped worrying what he or she would say next about her, she probably could be free of emotion, free of the outside life and then her chain of everlasting shyness would break. She could talk nonstop to anyone who approached her and she could have her soul dancing for the celebration of FREENESS. So to boost the young girl’s emotions on everything, she needs to stop looking for the solid ugliness she finds in herself and find the wholeness of beauty. After she finds the wholeness of beauty in herself she will find HERSELF, and there would be no need for low self esteem and shyness. Everyone should believe in their selves and have confidence...so shall the young girl.
