Overcoming | A Poem

I tell myself to breathe

As I wipe palms on jeans

I force a smile to my face

Tell myself it’ll be okay

Standing on two feet

Let my legs carry me

I swallow, stride faster

Down carpeted stairs

Up the black stage

The curtain parts

Before the show begins

I open my mouth

Project my voice out loud
