if you don’t feel like yourself

listen

if you don’t hear your own voice

get louder

let the walls, and the trees

echo

with your own sound.

People say

what they hear

Recordings

going round and round

They don’t know

their purpose

they don’t know

their sound

they tell common lies

and neglect obvious

truths

they are afraid

of themselves

they don’t believe their own words

and they don’t believe their own sound

if they dare to speak

they are silenced

and they stay silent.

When you speak

in secret

they will know.

Your life is not their life

Your dance is not their dance

It’s entirely your own

with much confidence

delight

and swing

you are unaffected by their sound

your power is a revelation

not a recording

an unfolding

beautiful

sound.
