About To Go On

By Barbara Irvin

“It is almost time to go on stage,” I hear my teacher say.

I have been practicing every night and day.

How come I feel so sick?

Like the tempo of a song, my heartbeat is quick.

This is my only chance.

I must do a perfect dance.

There is no choice but to succeed.

The crowd gives me the courage I need.
