Center Stage

All eyes are on you.

Drilling into your brain,
putting all your
insecurities on display.

You’re just standing there,
feeling chilled to the bone,
you might as well be naked.

So you try to disengage yourself,
from the drowning of
the powerful stares
scorching fires into your skin

as you get ready
to introduce yourself
to a room full
of buzzing-bee minds.
