nervous: part iv

nervousness is a plague,
a plague which threatens my balance.

i feel butterflies,
curiously swarming around my being.

my feet cannot stop tapping.

the beginning of school,
a surprise test,
the urge to do well on a soccer match,
the piano keys beneath my fingers,
my parents’ unflinching gaze…

my feet cannot stop tapping.

nervousness permeates
every inch of my soul.

and these beautiful butterflies
never stop performing
their special dance
for me.
