Be shy only if you want to be shy at the moment. But, not every time......................

Never stood by myself 

I thought others are there for me,

They went away till the end

Got the victory to treat themselves


Do not be ashamed at all

If you have your parents along,

Stand straight as a soul with brave

Thank them for the birth they gave


You always have your shadow with you

The best friend who never leaves you,

Withstand your challenges alone

Should think out of your comfort zone

Some people are born shy, no matter how old they are. I think it takes time for them to be comfortable before they can have a conversation with someone. Good topic  DiyaSL :).

A very thoughtful poem with a classic rhyme and song-like structure. I really like how you wrote this poem with a more "free-style" vibe when it came to the rhymes, creating your own pattern without restricting yourself to an exact abab or abba format.
However, because this is a Review Chain review, I do have to nitpick at least one thing for my review to count towards our house. For this poem, the only thing I can think of to criticize is that your word choice is very simple. There is nothing with that, particularly for short poems that are more about the message/rhythm than about analyzation, but I do feel this poem lacked unique diction or vivid imagery that would really set you aside from other writers.
Other than that, I do believe this is a lovely poem and I wish you the best for your future writings.

Thanks a lot for your review Sharp. I got your point. I will definitely try to think a little out from simple poetry. Once again, than you for your criticism mixed compliment :)
