Using Your Voice is a Political Choice


Using your voice isn’t about talking
It’s about the freedom
That comes with the ability to express yourself

Through art, music, writing
And the shakiness that comes with it
How people might view you
What if they disagree, judge you

But it is important to take the political step
Choose to be heard before it’s too late
Even if your voice shakes

Because at the end
Of the long, bumpy road
We traipse through
You will realize it’s not about anyone
Other than you

It’s about telling your story
The way you want it to be told
The way it should be told

Using your voice
Is a political choice
So make it.
