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.
