RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Wishing to open all avenues to what lies within,
yet always being way too shy, preferring to hide
and let others find out for themselves who I am.
Withdrawing from everyone's attention, hiding
behind writing so I won't be bothered having to
talk or carry on a conversation.
Yet, wishing that I could be as open as I am honest
with those who know me intimately.
