"Sometimes My Nerves Get The Best Ff Me."

“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”.

 I hide behind a mask because I am nervous.

My heart pounds.

My stomach hurts.

My palms sweats.

Nervousness.

 

 I love acting, it is my passion.

 Acting makes me feel amazing, I know I do a great job.

 But who I really am is the problem.

               

When I am on stage I do my best.

Inside, I am a nervous wreck.

Outside, I present myself to be calm.

I try to convince myself not to be nervous.

It doesn’t always work.

 

The masks I hide behind are the drama masks.

 One is comedy.

One is tragedy.

I am both.
