Where is your voice?

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

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.
