I'm standing here with this microphone in my face.

My heart

Thump

Thump

Thump-ing,

Onto the floor.

Everyone's staring, waiting,

For me to say something,

But my mouth is dry and my eyes are wet,

And my hands are shaking so bad that I can barely read the paper that my

Life

Changing

Words are on.

I part my lips and speak so fast that I don't have time to breath,

And then…

Silence,

And then…

Clapping,

And then…

Its over.
