That’s what they say
That’s what they tell me
Just own it
Just speak up
Say what you want to say
How do you use a voice you have lost?
A voice that is gone cannot be spoken with
Maybe you lost it
Perhaps it was stolen from you
Even visciously and unwillingly taken
So now you have no voice left
How do you speak with that?
How do you speak with no voice?
Words will come out
But not the words that need to be heard
And you find yourself stuck looking for your voice in a world that everyone tells you just to speak up in.
Do you not know that’s confusing?
Do you not know that hurts?
To not be heard is more painful than the searching.
