why poetry + (THE VOICES)

her words struck me like lightning.

passion and strength erupted from her booming voice.

it was beautiful and terrifying all at once.

 

(WHY ARE YOU SO WEAK?)

 

it was at that moment

with me sitting on my bed

staring intently at the slam poet on my laptop screen

that i decided i wanted to be on that screen.

 

(YOU’RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH SILLY)

 

i wanted to feel

strong

important

powerful

beautiful

 

(THINGS YOU WILL NEVER BE)

 

could i do it?

 

(NO)

 

I CAN AND I WILL.
