You Owe the World Your Voice

Say it loud.

In dark times, it’s tempting to shut yourself in a corner, alone from judgment and free from anxiety. Safer it seems to hide in shadows than step beyond bravery’s thick threshold.

But nothing happens in that lonely corner. Nothing you desire from life can ever reach you in a self-imposed trench of fear.

Emerge from that abyss. Gird your determination and claw through doubt’s stubborn muck. Extend your voice farther, wider until it spreads like beads of oil in water, always dancing yet standing distinct from crowds of hydrogen and oxygen.

Bleed your feeling heart onto the universe’s infinite sheet. Steady your mind, relax your nerves, open your mouth. No matter who agrees, objects, or ignores, you owe the world your voice.
