In front of the class
My voice caught, stuck in my throat.
Peers peering at me.
My English class had to do a poetry presentation, where we all got to stand up and explain a poem to the class. The level of stage fright that was admitted was quite humorous, even though most of them didn’t display much if any. But, it did inspire me to write this in the middle of a presentation as one girl struggled. Fear sucks.
