The moment

My contribution to Writer's Island prompt - The moment

A sunny morning
an anxious beginning
Will I get through?
to be part of software crew

To make myself stand out
prayers chanted loud,
Shutting down other choices
Ruling out external noises

The deciding moment
no room to repent,
heart pumps fast
adrenalin flows aghast

no reason to sob,
I got my first job
The offer is mine,
pay myself to dine

freedom to stand
on my own feet,
the turning point
a memorable feat

I like the way you used one 'moment' and the emotions it carried with it til the end. Nice!

There is a certain thrill as I read this piece with anticipations building up. You sound excited when you wrote this, your voice excites the reader in effect sharing your great moment.

I wish you well.
