The Leap - Poem dedicated to members of D'Utama Toastmasters Club


The Leap



Jump my friends on the
exciting 'Wheel of Toastmasters',
Round we go on a
kaleidoscopic ride:
speaking
listening
leading.

Spin quickly and our hearts
thump deeply in our chest:
assignment fever
new role-play moments
presentation pitfalls.

But Spin slowly and the butterflies
in our tummy calm within:
absorbing
improving
growing.

So ride my friends on the
colourful 'Wheel of Toastmasters'
and make it
YOUR Best Moment!
