    i stepped on stage,
    took the mic.
    looked out,
    and froze.
    while thousands of eyes,
    undressed me.
    not caressed me,
    but thought less of me.
    i opened my mouth,
    started to sing.
    then my heart skipped a beat,
    out of the crowd soared a word so mean.
    it was GET OFF!
    and i stopped.
    pivoted on my foot,
    and my bones locked.
    then unlocked before i knew it,
    and i turned around to see the audience.
    only to find them,
    applauding.
    for what you ask,
    for that i could see.
    cuz i took the pain,
    and not let the words degrade me.
    i spoke no words,
    cuz none was needed.
    i took the mic,
    and then proceeded.

    (snaps coming out from the audience)

    the rose was......
    like a baby.............
    soft and precious...........
    it couldn't be touched.......
    just awed at..........
    yeah.............................................

    (the snaps rang out louder from the audience)

    i stopped,
    let go of the mic.
    smiled my sideways smile,
    stepped off and said good night.

    i was changed,
    in the instant by their umph.
    their umph of you can do it,
    and i did it.
    to prove nothing more,
    than what i did.

    but more than anything,
    i was loved.
    ....................................................i was loved............. :luv:
