Spotlight is Always Yours

The floor’s yours
Time to take
Your rightful spot
On center stage
Perform your best
Give your all
Until judge says:

You’re worth it

This deepest desire
So close you…
Can taste it
Can almost grasp
In your fingertips
But it slips
Along with all
Trace of confidence
Into abyss of

Not good enough
If a judge
Simply says “no”

Inhibitions, not there before
Now you’re stuttering

Hesitation, scared you’re wrong
But you’re forgetting

To forget the
Judge, to remember
That your spotlight
Only leaves if
You let it

Your spotlight will
Always shine bright
Like the star
That you are.
As long as
You’ll take it.
