To Be Heard



My voice



Are guarded

I speak slowly

I speak


I speak with purpose

A pattern without rhythm

Yet in its own way


In a desire

To be known

To be heard



Thoughts gathering

No umm

No err

Just silent contemplation

Always in the moment

Gathering the composure

To carry on

Being heard


Not prophetic


Always self editing

Always careful



For when I speak

It must make sense

It must not be a waste

I must not waste


And every


To be heard


Be it thought provoking

Emotionally evoking

Or simply


A calm cautious voice

Can passionately speak

Not for vanity

Or indulgence of insanity


To take the limited time I have

And make it worthwhile

To be heard


Words that are spoken clear

Accessible to anyone

Gracious enough to listen

And for everyone

Who find themselves near

And may not choose to

But happen to hear

All that I choose to say

I my guarded


Meticulous way

Come those days

I want nothing more

Than to be heard

    1. Thank you! I got a little caught up in this after some failed attempts at speaking up. I get so shy, so guarded that I had to evaluate exactly what it is I do and the stresses I put on public speaking of any variety.
      I’m really glad you enjoyed this piece, it was a lot of fun to record and really lean into the introspective contemplative voice
