Up in front, here I am
Hung up like clothes or ham
Stage fright taking over me
Sweat pouring down my face I can't see

I'm standing up here
I can't imagine anyone in underwear
All I can do is stare
Being in front of a lot of people is a scare

Blinking, stopping, and pores leaking
I'm not fond of public speaking
I love to share my work
But saying it out loud I feel like a dork

Poems are what i like to write
Pens defy swords in a fight
I think writing is fun
The best part is the reaction when i'm done.

Oh my gosh, great poem! I can totally relate to this piece. I get nervous when I share with a crowd, but seeing the reactions of other people are priceless. Great job, keep up the awesome work!

Love it, you quite literally made me actually feel nervous and stage fright as I read the poem, ending with a content feeling at the end. "Pens defy swords in a fight" is a brilliant line, keep it up! The writing is excellent :)

We wouldn't ask a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals; in turn we'd all celebrate its tenacity, we'd all love tz will to reach the sun well we are the roses n these are my damaged petals don't ask me why thank God and ask me how

Good work. Keep writing. Check out my poem Ghosts of the Past. Will really appreciate it and do comment. Thanks! :-)
