Their voice was loud,

My voice couldn’t be heard,

Others were believing what they were saying because they were loud,

I didn’t know how to be heard,

I didn’t know how to convince others not to believe the ones that were loud.

 

The negative words about me were believed by others,

My voice wasn’t loud enough,

I was desperate to be heard by others,

I wasn’t convincing enough,

I cared too much about others.

 

It was hurting me that others weren’t believing me,

I wanted others to believe my own truth,

I wanted others to believe me,

Others believed what wasn’t the truth,

Nobody seemed to believe me.

 

They didn’t see the real me,

They saw the vision others had of me,

I cried because nobody believe me,

I walked away silently crying because nobody believed in me,

It was the best choice to walk away from those who didn’t believe in me.

 

No, I’m still not loud,

Yet I’m now surrounded by those who can hear my voice,

I’m thankful that I don’t have to be loud,

I’m thankful that those that matter hear my voice,

Others can believe those that are loud.

 

Others can believe the negative stuff others say about me,

I’m done trying to prove the wrong people who I truly am,

I’m done trying to prove the wrong people what the truth is about me,

I’m just happy that the right people know who I truly am,

I’m just happy that the right people believe my own truth about me.
