Silent Watching - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

So silently I watch people around me, wishing I could be more open
and outward in life.
Instead, I continually hide myself beneath many coverlets of
rainbow verse, afraid to come out and be myself.
For I know I will be chastised and ignored for who I am in this
world of unfairness and blindness towards a gifted person of
Intently focusing on inner thoughts coming to me so I may write
them out.
Yet, no one understands who I am or must be through this life.
With no understanding or acknowledgement for who I have become
in God's own eyes.
