Last year, I did some research and found an open mic for Poetry. The Poetry Cafe in Convent Garden allows individuals, including published poets, to recite a poem in front of an audience.
As this was my first time, I thought it would be a good way to build up my confidence. With the support of a friend, I stood up and recited the poems that I had written,
You can sense how nervous I was, simply by the speed of reading through it. And, yes, not looking at the audience, who were lovely and encouraging.
What can you gather from this poem?
Again, bear in mind, I was extremely nervous so I don’t believe that I did justice to the poem itself!
