You Must Take Ownership of Your Voice

This voice

it’s made for using

not for abusing

or causing bruises

or for losing

I claim my voice

I own my voice

I am my voice

And so,

I speak

as clearly

articulately

eloquently

as I possibly can

because no one can speak for me

so I will live

breathe

speak

and be

all that I came here to be

and I will use my voice

every single step of the way.
