Stage Fright

June 24, 2009
I take my first word…

And freeze.

All eyes are on me.
Fear has made me a cripple.
I try to continue to find my tongue frozen.

I count seven hundred eyes.
I say my first word again.
The second came easily
The third was a little harder

The more I go the easier it is.
Laughter rose from the back.
I was frozen yet again.
I try to go on and blackness over comes me…

Yeah, I've definitely had stage fright... I can definitely relate.
