Stage Fright

Come out come out! Where ever you are! Those of you hiding in the crowd know who you are. Come out come out! wherever you are! those of you scared to speak out loud in front of a crowd know who you are! Those of you suffering from stage fright. Know who you are. Just the thought of everybody looking at you. The fear of public speaking has you terrified. You’re like a deer in a room full of mountain lions. Some of you say you’re not scared. You just don’t feel like coming up on stage Or stand up and speak in the middle of a classroom. But we know better. If you had a choice between stepping up to the mic or kissing the ugliest person on the planet. We know some of you would pucker up… When it comes to public speaking, some of you would prefer to be in the coffin then to give the eulogy at the funeral. Some of you are scared that You’re going to embarrass yourself or that something is going to go wrong, or that you’ll look stupid. Well never fear, people want to hear you do well. They want to see you succeed, when you speak your mind. Well that day will come when you are ready. That’s when you’ll show your quiet defiance and determination. You will be ready to dance like Nobody is watching. Sing like no one is listening, and speak like you’re standing in an empty room. If this sounds crazy, then you will learn that most poets aren’t wrapped too tight. And that our creative elevators go up to the top floor. Where we are in good company. Because if you haven’t heard, there are some people who are crazy, and then there are some people who are good and crazy. So which one are you?
