Speak It

Say your words,

don’t let your voice whither inside.

Weariness can talk you into thinking that your voice doesn’t matter.

The past may try to convince you that your voice doesn’t count.

Resignation will yell,

“No one will listen any way, so save your breath.”

Say your words

clearly and just loud enough.

Say them for yourself and for the one

that isn’t willing to be the first to speak,

but can and will be the second.
