Acceptance

I was always a little bit shy,
Never understanding why  
It's been so difficult to vocalize
My inability to socialize. †
  
"You do just fine!" they always say; †
Yet, I canít keep these thoughts at bay: †
'Donít talk to me, just stay away. †
Come back again another day.'
†  
As the anxious feelings grew, †
And from society, I withdrew; †
I began to question my behavior †
Trying to be some kind of savior. †
†  
I pondered every diagnosis †
From depression to psychosis, †
And convinced myself that I was mad. †
That was really fucking bad! †
†  
As time went by, I came to see †
That nothingís really wrong with me.  
But, through the lens of our society, †
I almost lost my sanity.

Came up with this in about 20 minutes... just how I'm feeling in the moment. If I second guess sharing this, I probably never will, so here goes. Am I coming to terms or giving up?
