Oh to be able to speak my mind.
Believe me, one day I will.
I should say, at times right now, I do.
I speak it loud and clear.
And yet, at times I bite my tongue, hold my thoughts, clench my jaw.
Not because I fear what you all may think.
Oh no, I am well beyond looking for approval.
How to win friends and influence people? I’m not looking for friends I have to win.
As far as influencing, well, okay, maybe I do that a wee bit.
Why the spaces between each line? To give pause to each sentence I type tonight.
Tomorrow is a big day for me. One that I want to write freely about. One that I will write freely about.
The Warrior within me is crying out. Not a sad cry. No longer a lonely cry. Not in fear.
No, she is strong. Her resolve is renewed. She has discovered who she is. Her voice is no longer silenced.
She is ready for battle.
Her army surrounds her. They go before her, along side her, and follow behind her.
She is protected on all sides.
Tomorrow is the day the Warrior cries, “That’s NOT Okay!”
It never was. It isn’t. And it never will be.
To be continued……
