a poem I wrote after i did a poetry reading
My first poetry reading
was at Miramar collage
called Evening with the Experts.
I watched all the students
reading their poems
which I really enjoyed.
While I was waiting for
my turn to stand up and read, I felt so nervous inside me.
When they called me up to read, I was very shaky because that was
my first time, later I was alright.
When I was done I was so happy. I did it and I heard all the people clapping. I felt the joy they are sharing.
