Weeks of practice all go to this one day
I’ve practiced hard and I can’t wait to start
My fingers are psyched and ready to play
My music comes out solely from the heart

This competition’s different than before
Intensity has multiplied by five
High school demands I give my all and more
The final telling moments have arrived

I play my piece upon my saxophone
And listen to the comments in silence
He says he likes the feel and my sweet tone
I proudly accept the score one-minus

Playing this song is worth my sweat and tears
I’m proud of what I have accomplished here

The author's comments:
I wrote this sonnet because it reflects the journey I took in order to play this difficult piece in a musical competition I was participating in. Although I spent hours and months in preparation, the final result was all worth it.
