Sonnet F40.10 – Social Anxiety Disorder

Not one of my two minds knows what to do.

The first knows for certain the worst will follow

From all those waiting to make me the fool

For being too dim, sweaty or shallow.

My second mind takes an opposite view

Believing that what’s been learned from the past

Will give the chance to see what is true

If I start to feel I’m being outclassed.

There is a room before me where I’ll pause.

A time approaching that can’t be avoided.

An occasion that I’ll rise to because

Being with you is an honest source of joy.

My twin minded quarrel plays less of a part

Knowing between us we share but one heart.
