Stage Fright

Stage Fright
By: Elizabeth Becker

I’m no good at poetry
I cannot make a rhyme
I talk to fast or much to slow
I can’t keep track of time

Whenever I am up on stage
I feel like I might faint
Should I worry? Is that natural?
Ill see a doctor if it ain’t!

I can hear when I mess up
Better than when I do good
Nervous breaths of indecision
By the crowd are understood

I must move-always wiggle
Tuck my hair behind my ear
Slightly swaying side to side
Your disapproval-my biggest fear

When it’s over I always smile
I’m blushing more and more
The noise of clapping and of cheers
I’ll know forever more!
