For Those With Social Phobia

Poem By Francis Duggan

At parties and social gatherings they feel out of place
Such occasions for them a huge challenge to face
For those with social phobia how tough life must be
They are to be pitied would you not agree
Never feeling comfortable in the social crowd
Whilst others are laughing and talking out loud
The one with social phobia by silence is bound
Never comfortable with so many strangers of her or of him all around
Of being shy and over sensitive they do appear
And even the thought of being present at social gatherings they fear
They find it a struggle for to make a friend
When they say that they do not like parties they do not pretend
One for them only can feel sympathy
Of their social phobia they will never be free.

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
