At first, I have nothing to say.
Absolute silence, you know?
Do I care? I don't.
It's the usual uncertainty in my head.

It is a challenge.
I don't have to bite my tongue.
I repeat, I have nothing to say.
Every frickin' day.

I'm not articulate.
I don't have a secret.
Instead, I feel conflicted.
I do say beautiful sentences...in my head.

I have to say them to make a difference.
I have to declare my sentences.
I have to give my wisdom.
I have to make a difference.
