The Feelings Before The Stage

The sounds of beats and rhythms make hands clap,

Lips mouthing familiar words on time,

Louder it soon becomes, making feet tap,

Nerves shake behind curtains, ready to shine?

Hundreds of eyes placed on you and your movements,

Now is the time to free the emotions,

Be as big or small but never transparent,

They fall in a trance as if they drank potions,

Finish off strong with a big smile on your face,

Sounds of hands coming together travel through,

They are amazed by such beauty and grace,

Walk behind the curtains with proud eyes on you,

So much heart and soul put into one dance,

Conveys happiness, excitement, or romance.
