I was from a small city,
Born and brought up with self-pity.
Little knowing about the other world,
My exposure was minimum all so curled.
Somehow I got admission in metro city,
I was nervous, could not express, being polite no audacity.
Having my peer laughing at me,
I was scared of interacting free.
But I was sure of conquering my limitation,
Reading, learning was my aspiration.
Most of the time I was in the library,
Exploring, good books, noting expression, no more scary.
Days change to weeks and years,
Transforming me on my dressing, I wear.
Then came a time, when I had to anchor,
I rehearsed, my apprehension conquered.
As I walked towards the stage,
I saw few smiling face some in rage.
My Inner me told me speak without fear,
Backstage my teacher hugged me, who was very dear.
I was poised and calm,
In the beautiful outfit full of charm.
The internal conflict was very high,
I have to do it, I said with a deep sigh.
I walked with a cordless mike,
Nervous, quivering my BP was on hike.
I could feel the butterfly in my Stomach,
Thousands of audience staring at me as much.
I started on addressing my session,
Found myself good, is my true confession.
Words were meaningful and impressive for some,
Bewildered people applauded, I was number one.
