5 quotes on owning your voice

1.

"i am taking my lips

back from your hands, 

so that this day forward, 

i. speak. for. myself. "

 

2.

"give her back her voice. 

un-claw your hands from it. 

she may look weak and quiet. 

but her voice is still hers to hold. 

hers to stroke and nourish. 

hers to decide when and how

she'll use it. "

"there is a poem

in all of us. 

crawling up our throats. 

a poem

called

our truth

-let it out. "

"take out

your eyes

from inside

your lips. 

stop acting blind, 

just to stay silent. 

-wake up. speak up. "

 

5.

"do not let them

buy your lips.

buy your words. 

no amount of $$$

is worth selling

away your power. 

-power is priceless. "
