About To Go On

“It is almost time to go on stage,” I hear my teacher say.
I have been practicing every night and day.
How come I feel so sick?
Like the tempo of a song, my heartbeat is quick.
This is my only chance.
I must do a perfect dance.
There is no choice but to succeed.
The crowd gives me the courage I need.
