my voice found freedom

Today I gave away to the voice inside of me

It screamed to get out but I had kept it in

But as I watched it weep, I heard my voice scream

The anguish, the pain, the raw feeling of helplessness

The sense of violation and the security that cannot be recovered

At that moment I let my voice run free from the prison I had put it in

I let it run and scream and cry for a moment

Forever lost to the cruelties of others

I let my voice walk the path of its pain

It touched the past and revisited the dark spaces

and when it came back …

It was bruised and bleeding, hurt and sore


Tonight I let my voice express itself to the world and it touch freedom
