When You'Re Feeling Not Quite Your Best - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

How are you really feeling when you're feeling,
Not quite your best as some expect?
When performing for others becomes a test.

How are you really feeling when you're feeling,
Not quite your best as some expect?
And you would rather relax and rest?

Do you do what some do and go through the steps?
Only to not care what steps to do next?
With a wish you had an understudy...
To do what you do but only better yet.

How are you really feeling when you're feeling,
Not quite your best as some expect?
And to be able to get away it with no regrets.

Praying someone will remember when,
You bettered your best efforts.
As if renewed by an energy...
With a hunger to impress.
And what you are now offering...
They are willing to help you to quickly forget!
