My voice so soft

I can barely hear myself speak

the words come at a whisper

my story is not being heard

 

I want to sing

but I am scared

what if I am not a good singer?

what if my words don't make sense?

 

I try to let out a note

but it cracks and is out of tune

will I ever get my song out?

will my voice ever be strong enough?

 

So I practice

I fine tune the song

I warm up my vocal cords

I learn to sing from masters

 

I am encouraged

my song is getting stronger

I am still fearful of the reaction

what if I find out I really can't sing?

 

The fear is overwhelming but

I step out onto the stage

and I realize

I don't need an audience

 

my song is my song

I belt it out

no longer worried

who hears it
