Stage Fright

Stage Fright

A Poem by Colleen a Bean

 


Frozen in place
 Feeling so sick
 Sweating
 Shaking
 Trembling
 I can't speak
 I can't breathe
 Stage fright
 It has taken over me
 I close my eyes
 I can do this
 Deep breaths
 On the count of three
 I will open my mouth
 And then everything will be ok
 I'll be singing
 And I will feel so free
 Everyone will look at me
 I'll be a star
 I just have to close my eyes
 Breathe
And then believe
 That everything is going to be ok

Each has their own way of dealing... but deal we must in our own way and time. You're doing fine. Well expressed in and as a poem.

Oh gosh I can relate to this so much. I used to be so afraid of public speaking. All of these would happen to me. Very accurate descriptions, at least in my case anyway!
