Remind me again, where is your voice?

4 years ago

It's in there, somewhere, amid
A dozen drafts
Status updates written, then deleted
Tweets left unsent

erase
It's in there, somewhere, amid
Reluctance to be judged
Unwillingness to disappoint
Yearning to be liked

It's in there, somewhere, amid
Crippling perfectionism
Misplaced inadequacy
Rampant inertia

It's in there, somewhere.

So clear out the clutter
Face the fear
And speak.
