There is nothing I hate more
than to watch people suffer
with problems they could easily solve,
all because they're too afraid to say something.
Everyone has that thing they can't say
to anyone else
or that thing they can't even admit to themselves,
and everyone has sentences
that always seem to be on their mind
but fear often envelops us before confidence can,
and more words go unsaid,
more feelings supressed.
for me to ask for your trust
when you hardly know me,
but trust me,
and I know
the hardest thing to say
makes your life so much easier
once it's been said.
do not put yourself
all because of a conversation you're too scared to have.
Because when it comes down to it,
even the hardest words to say
are nothing to be scared of.
They're just words.
I'm a writer.
I know words better than anybody.
And I also know
that when chosen carefully
and uttered respectfully
words can change your life
I know some things are hard to say,
hard to admit,
hard to even think about,
but if you just use your voice
even if it's cracking and almost silent,
you can lift weight from your chest
that you never even knew was there,
and isn't that worth the risk?
