speaking in public

Do I look fat?

Do I look scared?

Do I look ugly?

Gosh, why is it so hard

to speak in public?


I am standing here

And you are all ears

But I can’t face my fears

Want to shed a tear


But maybe it’s time that I


And showed you the

Walk that I walk

That could change your

whole perception

I could leave you my



If I am the speaker and

You are the crowd

Il share my opinion

Very clear and loud

I’ll give a new purpose

To this thing called


I was scared of

Speaking, what was all

That about?
