Speak Up

When you’ve been silenced for so long
It’s easy to believe that you don’t have a voice
That you’re not strong enough to speak in rooms that have people that continue to erase you
Take up space
There’s enough room in the world for you
Speak even when your voice shakes and cracks
Even when you feel like you may not survive what comes next
That fear is better than fearing the sound of your own voice your whole life
Speak up
