Stage Fright

My time has come,

my head just hums

I knew it was time

but only I knew it was mine


The stage was free,

it was just me

Fear controls me as I always lose,

nothing works but at least I choose


Never fear I am here, 

but it was unclear

Change is what I need,

but only once I fleed


Regret is all I think about 

and all it causes me is a great shout

Nothing gets better as I try harder

but I slowly climb the great ladder


Never fear, I am here, 

now it is clear

I see nothing is easy

but with time and practice it will become breezy
