Speak Out

I envy the people

Who are so skilled in this art

The people who can, so easlily,

Speak their mind out loud…

I try to, I swear

To explain myself

My thoughts, my emotions…

But somewhere between

My mind and my mouth

Something changes

The words jumble

I stumble, I stutter

I try so hard to speak out

But the more intense the emotion

Anger, sadness, love, fear

The harder it is…

My emotions bubble in my chest

And my mind is screaming

The words I want to say…

Maybe I’ll be able to speak them

Maybe, one day.
