Trying To Find Her Voice

This Thursday’s 2/20/14 writing prompt:
Finding Your Voice. 



Finding her voice is not always easy, because life can strangle, and breath comes hard and ragged.

She is a pleaser, and sometimes she hates that about herself. It is easier to say the right thing. It is what is expected.

She has words, ideas, thoughts, experiences. Wanting to be heard. Some times she wonders if that is possible?

A whisper of who she is, echoes on the wind. Softly, quietly

and then…….

Alone, she takes the opportunity to scream. The silence shatters as her voice slices the air.


It pours out. The emotion is wild. The tears cleanse.

Who is this person?

Where did she come from?


Everyone has a story. Even her.

The chapters of her story stained with the circumstances of life.

At times the words are trapped, they are too much. If the truth was told, it might not be pleasing.

And so she is quiet,

for now.


God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1  ESV
