Unfamiliar by Nqaba Dano

Poem

gazing around the room
unfamiliar faces
anxiety driven heartbeat
mistrust laden first word uttered
hello
the cracking voice
leaves the mouth
while the mind goes into hyperdrive
over thinking the responses it awaits
in a room full of strange faces
a friendship blooms
when the greeting is reciprocated
and the anxiety is rescinded
