Stage Fright!

Here I go- lights turning on,
And I feel like everyone is gone…
The audience quiets to see the show.
My atempts of singing well are very low.
I feel a nervous twitch, this is stage fright!
It’s when you feel, “I can’t do it right!”
But how can I face this nerve racking fear?
I mean, the part where I come on is very near…
I have to be strong- face the crowd.
Say my lines, clear and loud.
Yes, I can do it! My confidence is high!
Enter the stage, I’ll let my sprit fly.

Yes, I now can face this fear!
Here I go, and they WILL cheer!
The people, the faces, the lights…oh dear…
