Sometimes this stuff just comes out.

on November 14, 2016

What do you do with your voice?

Do you swallow it daily?

Like a nectar

You’re not supposed to savor

Only pushing it back with your tongue

And gulping it down

Like an unwanted medicine

Or do you roll it around

In your mouth

Sort out the words

Like exquisite flavors

Sweet

Tangy

A little bitter at times

And relish that it is there

For you

To do whatever you want with it.

    Susan, this is lovely. Leaves me a little speechless but definitely not voiceless. Elaine

      Thank you. The election results have triggered me in a way never experienced before. I need to figure out how to do something with these feelings churning inside.

    Lovely and totally agree. Having said that, I often have the tact of a grenade.
    The election has disturbed me greatly. I see images of flag burning, posts wishing a beheading ~ vitriolic and evil. Burning our flag, destroying stores, breaking car windows. I cannot see these as political acts but rather chaos. The venomous hateful posts from both party members are insane. I avoid politics and religion but the image of posts asking that someone be raped and
    beheaded (accompanied by photos of isis victims lined up) has stayed with me all day.

    LOL, Hi

    I really enjoyed this especially when before I use to swallow my voice not letting others hear it. This short tease is a great way to reiterate to yourself to always cherish your beautiful voice and speak up!
