Word Porn Wednesday : Spoken Word

Good morning and Happy Wednesday everyone. Tonight, there will be an open mic jam session at The Coffee Cave in Newark, NJ (45 Halsey St). If all goes as planned, I will be there performing as I have for the past 2 months now. It’s been a really great opportunity to meet new people, share my talents, and enjoy the talents of others as well. Since it’s Word Porn Wednesday, I’ve decided to share my very first public performance (almost a year ago today). The title of the piece is Dark Places.

It was a really fun experience, but I was sooooo nervous. Seriously. Everyone told me that I looked like a natural. They were convinced that I had everything under control. Well, looks can be VERY deceiving because I actually felt like this inside:

I’m not a huge fan of public speaking but there is something liberating about performing and sharing my work. Hopefully one day I will get over my nerves completely. Until then, I’ll continue shaking in my boots but I will definitely keep performing. If you’re in the area at all, come out to the Brick City Open Mic and BeCOMe apart of this great experience. You can sing, dance, do spoken word, rap… Whatever. Even if you just want to enjoy the show, you’re more than welcome. Hope to see some of you there! πŸ™‚

  1. You were right, I didn’t know you were going to take it there! nonetheless I enjoyed. You were also right that I would want to perform but I don’t have that much confidence in myself yet. Maybe next time ill muster the courage to get up and do something. You definitely did not disappoint! πŸ™‚
