The Elocution Day

The Elocution Day

A Poem by Abdur Raqeeb
"

Stage Fright...... Something which we all have dealt with some moment in our lives.

"
The elocution day was a disaster I declare
I entered the hall with hope
That stage fright is what I could cope.

I took my seat according to the order
And when I heard my competitors
I started to get the jitters.

My turn finally arrived
I took the long walk to the stage
Hoping that I wouldn't fail.

My worst fears came true
When I suddenly forgot my lines
But tried in vain to remember them by signs.

Then I started to feel dizzy
I fainted and I cannot recall what happened next
All I can remember is that I woke up to hear the doctor say that I needed some rest.

I had succumbed to stage fright yet again
The elocution was a disaster
And fear is what I have to master.
