An Acrostic by…



Daunted by the task ahead,

Alarmed by fear of failure.

Vacillating about what might be said,

I am indecisive and unsure:

Doubtful how these words will be read.


Galvanised now by my preceding exertion,

Reassured by reaching here.

Activated by my determination;

Heroically I restrained my fear.

Almost at my destination:

Might this be a place to cheer?
