Nervous as Chocolate

January 18, 2008
I hear my name being called.
I stop practicing and freeze.
Why? Why did I have to be second?
I walked up to the stage
Knees and hands shook
I was a candy bat
Left out in a car in the summer,
Melting and I could not escape.
Somehow I worked myself up
And the car's air conditioner kicked on
And I told the crowd
As well as I could,
The way to keep things whole
Is to walk and stay calm
And it all works out
