University Life Café

man at a lecturn giving a speech

Your Turn Mr. President

Liquid fear emerged from the deep crevices of his thoughts

A subtle quake from the soul shown on his lips

Pen trembling in hand as the fluorescents pierce his pupils

Speech is over

Action is now

Never ending doubt threatened any movement
