I’m not sure who
has made you feel insignificant,
but I can assure you
no matter how you have been made to feel,
your voice deserves to be heard.
Your words are meant to be felt.
And the life that comes out of you
is unique to you and no one else.
You may not have the next few years figured out,
and there are times when you want to speak up
but you do not know how.
when the words do finally come
and you find the courage to open up,
your story will not be too much.
