My Words 📝

I lost my voice

Maybe for lack of relevance

Or maybe for lack of appreciation

For so long I went silent

For so long my thoughts were never expressed

Slowly I watched my confidence sail away

Till I embraced loneliness

Slowly all that mattered vanished

Till I embraced depression

One lonely night I found hope

One lonely night I found a goal

I began to write

I began to pour out the pain

I started asking questions

I started finding answers

I realized I was never alone

I realized there were people who could connect

Suddenly my voice mattered

Suddenly all that mattered became clear

My words brought courage

My words became my voice
