“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.
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.
