a restless night
losing sleep
all because
i was called to be the reader
in class

i read all of the time
to myself
but in a microphone
looking up references
for the instructor
seems different

i'm not scared
just a little self-conscious
but then again
that word SELF
can really be a hurdle

so, i read
it wasn't perfect
just like me
but then again
it was plenty good
and, it looks like i'll be reading
again next week

isn't it wonderful how we are accepted in the Beloved?
