Silent (an acrostic poem)

She drifted to the back of the room

It just felt more comfortable being out of the spotlight

Liza didn’t like performing on demand

Even when she was paid for it she had such anxiety

Now allow her her quiet space and she blossomed

That was hard when you were master of ceremonies

Professor (an acrostic poem)

Projecting out into the student filled room

Ronald felt the thrill of performing again

Oh the joys of the beginning of the semester

Fresh faces full of hope and promise

Everyone eager to feast upon very utterance

Still Ronald knew that this honeymoon would be short lived

Since he had two homework assignments to give due on day two

Ordinarily that should trouble his inner child

Reality was his inner child moved away from home a long time ago for not paying rent
