Like you, I am a little bit shy
Walking in the opposite direction of most strangers,
You know why,
Holding my true feelings within my soul,
Not wanting to seem cold
Striving to remember proper manners,
You warned me of the strangers tactless patterns
Although, you mentioned, that I,
I should accept others for who they are,
Not what, Not we
Like the fingerprint, Our true upbringing remains,
existing in itself
Prejudice, If not checked
This to, shall, for ever be with us
Eternally, agitating our health.

Beautiful and very introspective…the beginning reminds me of how I am—Introverted and shy, keeping to myself.
