I was afraid to speak,
Still I spoke,
My soul wanted me to speak,
I listened to my soul and spoke,
I was thankful that I listened to my soul and decided to speak.
I would’ve regretted more if I hadn’t spoken,
I preferred to endure the pain of speaking,
Yes, sometimes there was pain after everything was spoken,
Still I didn’t want to endure the pain of never speaking,
I don’t regret that everything was spoken.
It was my spoken words,
It was my uttered truth,
My soul was free because of the spoken words,
My soul was free because of the uttered truth,
Still I shed tears afterwards because I wasn’t always accepted after the truth or words.
Eventually I realized I didn’t need people who didn’t accept the real me,
I realized I needed people who accepted the real me,
Thus, I kept being the real me,
I kept hoping someone would accept the real me,
Now I’m blessed and thankful because someone has accepted the real me.
