Own Your Voice

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.
