The Finale

-Danielle M. Rocheford, 1984

Out on the stage filled with fear,
Gazing at all the people so quiet, so near.
Trying to ignore them so you don’t miss your line,
Standing there so helpless, but within time…

Your part was said and your song was completed,
That wasn’t so hard and you were not defeated.
The audience cheers as they stand up and clap,
You bow for them and then you walk back.

Then, the auditorium is empty as you walk out the door,
You turn back and smile, and bow once more.
