The rising anxiety Flares my insecurity. I clear my throat, The words just won't come out right. And I stutter and avoid Staring at my audience And I bit my lip, Remembering hours Of memorizing my topic Only to forget it Right on the spot. I gather my courage and do my best I finish my presentation And they clap politely And the relief is my refuge as I sit With something of pride in my eyes.
Pretty sure everyone cab relate to feeling really nervous while presenting a presentation
