The Sacrifice of a Person who is Scared of public Speaking

July 15, 2020


legs shaking / hands quivering / voice trembling 
anxious / scared / nervous
hearts pumping / sweat falling / eyes darting
eager / timid / skittish

In front / people looking / everyone listening
the notes I wrote / the message I say / the words I speak
all the years / I was afraid / to free my voice

for all the times / I got teary-eyed / from horrid embarrassment
my fear / of public speaking / retrain my freedom
my voice / so quiet / almost gone
my writing / unknown / no way spoken
I was so afraid / of what others / thought of me
I sacrificed / my voice / to them. 

This is my first time using slashes, so if I used it wrong, please tell me.

    This is really good! I can relate to this piece a lot. I can't speak about myself in front of people too well, but, interestingly, if I'm acting out another character, I can speak with confidence. Keep on writing!

    Yes, glossophobia is something I suffer from as well.

    I can semi-relate to this piece; it really captures total panic and fear that you get right before a speech in front of a lot of people. I love the last line!
