The Courageous Coward.jpg(By: Adrian Drower)

Public speaking, not easy,
Surprised like a bomb drop.
Last minute, so not prepared,
Is he nervous, scared or both?

Thinks to self, should I run?
Mind screams, make it stop.
Why do I have to do this?
I guess I’m just a coward.

Billy Joel sings in my head,
Why Should I Worry
? Is said.
All right I’ll give it a shot.
What could possibly go wrong?

That was better than I thought,
I did well for my first time.
Coward does not describe me,
I’m The Courageous Coward.
