Writing Prompt #11

What fear is holding you back?

Most definitely fear of failure. I look at this video of me trying to perform a piece sometimes and it’s traumatizing. I really want to perform because that’s what poets really do besides writing a book. So I really want to be known as a poet so I need to do this.

But the only thing holding me back is myself and this mindset. Like repeating this video is scary for me. I’m one of the shyest people you’ll ever meet. So trying to really expose myself and my talents on stage is a tough pill to swallow. I’m dying to get my feet wet. I know once I do then it’ll be easier when I do it again and again. The fear of drowning is what holds me back.
