I remember how it felt.
Nervous, excited, ready.
Smiling with every step I took.
It didn’t matter to me who said what.
I was hooked and stuck.
The room smelled like saw dust and roses.
Scripts scattered around and the sound of people rushing off to enjoy a quick five.
I remember the walls were green and there was about 15 steps between us.
The infrared beams were locked and loaded.
It was simple then. I wanted to experience something I had never had before. My hands were shaking but in my pockets hiding. Each step brought me closer to the future. Just a kid with dreams and ambition. As I look back now, that attitude got me to finish those last 14 steps. It wasn’t scary at all, I was ignorant. I had no clue what would come next.
I wanna feel that again.
