My hearth was pounding. It's Filipino now what should I do? Each student are suppose to perform in our Filipino class a monolouge. I wrote a very special story to perform but I was still nervous and worst of all I have a cold and my words aren't that clear as I'm sick. I don't know what to do.
Our teacher starts calling class numbers and my classmates starts performing one by one. As they perform I felt confident. I know I can do better. I know I can be the best but I was scared. What if I forgot my lines? I don't know what to do! Then the time comed. I gave all my best and perform as loud as could I forgot some lines so I just replace them with other words.
I was proud of my performance. Everyone clap my teacher was smiling at me and she said that what I did was the best. But I heard a remark that made me think twice.
"Ang Yabang mo!" I wanted to cry. I didn't do anything for him to say that. I didn't brag anything. I only gave all my best but why did he call me that? Is it bad to give all your best on a certain thing you love? Is it bad to show your talent? If so maybe we shouldn't have invented acting, singing or any arts for that matter at all!
I just don't get it? Why do we need to be harsh just because someone is better a us at something? Why do they need to call us a bragger if we only did our best? I just don't get and I don't know what to do anymore!
