Will you like me if I whine and worry and wail?

What if I blather on? And, take too long to make my point?

Will you hate me if I curse? If I lie just a little.

What if it's obvious that I'm S-T-R-E-T-C-H-I-N-G The Truth?

Will you feel annoyed if I ask too much?  If the words I use are not my own?

Does my voice make you cry and sigh and cringe? Do I say too much?  Or too little?

Do I make you want to STOP listening?


Please be patient with me.

My voice is my life.  It BREATHES.  It carries me forward.

Let me learn it.  Let me use it.  I don't want to be afraid of my own stories.
