Voice

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.

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.
