The long hours of preparation,
The days of anticipation,
That nervous feeling before it all begins.
The fear of rejection,
The want to run away,
That little voice inside saying it’ll be okay.
Perform your piece,
Play your heart and soul,
Fear is worth the chance to reach your goal.
Waiting with bated breath,
While your heart begins to speed,
The elation when they say that it’s your victory.
