    The first time I stepped up to the mic.
    I caught my first case of stage freight.
    I didn't have shaky knees or nothing like that,
    I was just nervous like i was in the world series, down by 1, ninth inning, two outs, full count....and I'm up to bat!

    It's the feeling like, I gotta win this game for us (for me).
    And then I step forward to conquer my feat.

    I open my mouth...
    something comes out,
    but I can't hear a **** thing.

    I see heads nodding in agreement,
    but again, I can't hear a **** thing.
    The moment took over itself.
    I no longer had control of myself.

    I came to the end of my notes in my notepad.
    Didn't understand the the power that I had.
    I got a round of applause full of love,
    I then could hear myself say thank you with the lights shining bright from above.

    That strange night on stage at Illinois State University,
    That's the first night, to others that I became Royal_T.
    I just wanted to be free.
    And that's the day poetry became a part of me.

    I Knew I Was In For A Treat!

    I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. I knew I was in for a treat. As I said earlier before I came here, with a name like that, I had to be in for a treat. That is terrible tight sista gurl. Enjoyed it much.
