Expression

Talking.

Talking is hard.

Breathing, eating, sleeping. 

It all seems hard.

From the time I was a young girl to now, everything has been hard.

Exspressing my feelings is hard but I have a dream.

I have this dream to empower young women. 

To stand up for what we own and who we are like I never could. 

Standing up for yourself is hard.

I want to be able to show young women that it is okay to express emotion and to be able to have an opinion.

It is okay.

One day we shall all feel empowered and we shall come together to grow as one.

To the little girl inside of me who says talking is hard..

She is right. 

It is.

Together we can inspire one another to become confient and we will learn that talking is not that hard.
