Be Nervous! Engage the Audience

Be Nervous! Engage the Audience

Public Speaking to an audience so free;

Like shifting gears, the power for all to see.

To engage the clutch and put it in gear;

Give it the gas, the timing, to fear;

The engine may stall;

The audience may tune out;

When to be silent; and when to shout.

Nervous energy keeps an audience awake.

Control that energy with vibration and shake.

Be nervous when speaking before a crowd.

The excitement, the respect,

Makes applause good and loud;

It’s all control, like engaging the clutch.

Being so smooth and radiate so much.
