~ The Act of Expression ~
Maybe you don’t think your voice matters
Maybe you think that you’re just another person
With nothing of any value to say
And this is exactly
What they want you to think
But know that every person on this planet has a unique perspective,
That can be a source of treasure to others
But as we grow up the noise of society intensifies
And many of us begin to believe that our feelings are wrong.
So we learn to silence our inner voice
Out of the fear of judgment and ridicule.
But think about the people who inspired you.
They were once in the same position
Of questioning whether they wanted to share their truth
Before finally discovering
That their emotions and their feelings
Were just as important as any news broadcast
Or school textbook.
So if you can feel something inside trying to get out
Then have the courage to open up.
Write your poetry.
Sing your song.
Dance your dance.
Speak your truth.
Sometimes a few words can change everything.
