Finale

To be continued, 

They say. 

But it never turns out very good. 

My book: finished. Done. 

Shall I put it away? 

Hide it away? 

What would you do if you think people will hate it? 

They’ll hate me too. 

Because they know who I am. 

I’m not anonymous. 

I can’t hide away. 

Shall I put it away? 

Because I’m worried. 

That is why 

I am shy 

To let you read my book. 

I am worried it will offend you. 

I am worried it will patronise you. 

I am worried it will hurt you. 

That is why 

I am shy. 

That is why 

I cry. 

Read it? I don’t know. 

It’s up to you 

What you do. 

As far as I’m concerned, it’s done. 

This is where it ends. 

I wrote,  

that is all. 

The curtain falls. 

My part is done.
