Voices that make no sound

I used to think that wailing out loud

was how to express my voice…

screaming for help,

displaying reasons for dependency-

showing that my voice wasn’t enough to hold me up…


Then I thought what I wrote

and how I put the pen to paper

was expressing myself enough.


Now that I am grown and wiser..

I have come to find that typing

is my best voice,

my bravest voice,

my most heard voice,

my most authentic voice…

because even when I speak my truths out loud..

my voice tends to quiver, and shake..


but here online, in the virtual world of my blog

expressing my voice that makes no sound….

is my greatest loudest expression of all.
