Lights, Camera, & Fear

Sudor and Anxiety

Things all too common in my life

There’s that deep pit in my stomach

Feeling as if it’s been twisted with a knife


Do I dare to continue?

Do I dare face the unknown?

For what lies in the shadows

Shall I conquer and overthrow


As I stare from the side

In my head, I repeat

As I scrimmage to the stage,

“For I will never face defeat”


In center and in sight

Fear grows strong like Goliath

But like David I rise

And my fear becomes silent


As I stride across the stage

And I deliver my verse,

In that moment, I knew

Fear was me thinking the worst
