The excitement hits your chest like a sledgehammer breaking up concrete.
Your heart is pounding like a rabbit scratching its ear
Fear tries to scream at you to stop, urges you to turn around
You choose to ignore it.
You must see this through, you’ve gone this far,
there is no turning back.
Time to make the leap
Jump! Go for it! You can do it! You’re number 1!
Then comes the calm…
Everything feels okay
There is no more pounding heart
no more clammy hands
no more fear screaming in the background.
There is only SILENCE.
It drapes the room.
The awkwardness drapes the audience, shhhhhhhhh!
Congratulations, you did it.
Now please turn off your phone and enjoy the movie.
