My feet pitter pattered as I walked towards the stage.
My hands are starting to become clammy.
I wonder, should I walk back or engage?
I’m not going onstage to get a Grammy.
But the intensity is building up,
how do I get it down?
I stand at the podium
Parents, the judges, and kids are in the crowd
I wonder if the gulp I just took was loud.
I shake as a I place my guiding paper on the podium
Suddenly, I hear my brother from the audience say, “You’ve got this.”
I lost my fear.
I received a sense of bliss.
I made sure to make my words come out precise and clear.
When I was done all, I could hear in my head was cheer.
It even made me drop a tear.
I finally accomplished something significant in my life.
I am not rife.
I have now made a step towards my future career.
I HAVE FOUGHT THE FEAR
