P.8 Poems: From Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Taking To The Stage

He defied his mother

by facing the audience

as he took to the stage.

He knew it was time

to stop the blame

and take

responsibility for

that which he had

not achieved as

he took to the stage.

This was the time

for him to remove the

mask freeing himself

from the past

as he took to the stage.

He was going to give a speech, the best

speech he would ever give

as he took to the stage.

He wondered suddenly,

‘What will the world think of me now, will

I hear laughs from them?’

Then he faced the audience,

the curtain was raised,

everyone in their place

and it all went smoothly.

As he took to the stage for

the season.

About charlottesrow

I am a aspiring writer who has taken my time getting to the plate. I have been a Jill-of-all trades. I had a career as a Nanny for many years and decided that I needed a change. I have a "day-job" that is currently supporting me to pursue after all these years the things I really want to do with my life. I love writing, reading, and learning new things! I will have to sort out the jumble that is my creative projects that have collected cobwebs, the time has finally come!
