Spoken Word Performance
I conquer my concerns
Starting meek and unsure
Finding my voice . . .
More and more powerful as I build
Cadence, rhythm, volume, and variation
One Two Three Four Five
Flexing my performance muscles
And now I release the breath I forgot I was holding
I begin to think about the next project I should tackle or mountain I should climb
Remembering always that I am the mountain I am moving
Tonight I did what I’ve been talking about for a while now — I performed some of my poetry. It was nerve wracking and it was fulfilling.
Thank you to Kristin for having faith in me always. A shout out to Conrad & Sam (aka 2/4 of The Luka State) for strongly encouraging me earlier this month to just sign up and do it after I read them one of my poems. Having two people whom I’d only just met hear one poem and tell me I should do this truly made a difference in my timeline.
