Stage Fright

Stage Fright

Crimson fell 
upon my face
when I realized 
the audience 
had not a clue
what I was 
trying to
convey

With the spirit 
of Sir William Wallace
i agreed to 
speak
intending
to captivate 
the crowd
with my 
eloquent 
voice

Yet the reaction
i was expecting 
never came to 
pass
instead cold
silence 
invaded the stage,
leaving me
with such an 
awful
feeling of desperation,
the likes of something 
I never felt before.....

Then like an angel
sent from
above
i saw in the midst 
of the crowd
one 
kind distant 
smile
fighting to 
give me comfort 
and confidence 
to carry on

Funny when facing
a thousand faces,
there only needs
to be one that gleams,
Showing  they believe in
you, to turn the tides
around......

Hello Greg...

Some people say they're nervous for the first few minutes...

​​​​​​Some people can just get out there and they are in complete control...

Great advice...

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...

I usually am nervous for about 30 seconds and then I grab the audience’s attention and I am very good of winning people’s views to my side
