Close your eyes
Take a deep breath in
And slowly let the air out
Feeling your lungs deflate
As the warm air leaves your lips.
Open your eyes.
Take that leap of faith
Keeping your mind blank
And do the thing that scares you the most.
Open your mouth,
Letting the words slip through your soft pink lips.
Your sweaty hand gripping the black microphone.
Your feet planted and growing roots into the stage.
Attempt to forget the eyes staring at you,
And just breathe.
Feel the anxiety
Coursing through your body.
Let it fuel you.
The butterflies in your stomach are making
An electrical charge
That sparks through your body.
Your jitters are and cold sweats
Are fueling your words.
You did it.
You faced for fear.
Walk off the stage with steady steps
And remember this moment.
Remember that all you have to do to
Face your fears is
