Shame This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Curtains open
stage flooded with light,
face white

with fear
of failing.
Knees weak and
shaking.
Stomach doing flips …
Nausea begins.

Voice is lost in
the crowd of faces
waiting,
expecting,
laughing.
Wonder when this will
end.
Curtain closes.
Muscles tightened

with anger,
and

shame.
