This is my voice
and no… you may not tell me how to heal!
This… this right now is my hour to press on
and you may not tell me to restore.
you may not tell me to forgive.
you may not tell me to hush
turn the other cheek.
You may not steal my voice from me!
Some have stolen my innocence
some have stolen my sense to react
my clarity in thinking
Some have stolen my childhood
my ownership of my thoughts
some have taken my dignity
some stole kisses
some stole touches
stole my safety
my understanding of love
some stole sex
they took… took with out asking
raped me from my right to say NO! To say yes.
If you wanted something from me…
you should have asked!
instead you took
and left me to hurt and suffer
to be left in confusion and wonder…
what you can not steal from me though
is my voice!
I can say whatever i want
how i want
when i want.
it is my time to use my voice
and you are not allowed to tell me how
I will speak whatever i want when i want
it is my time
i am taking back what you stole from me!
You tried to steal my hope
you almost took my life
you nearly succeeded in stealing my will to survive
but you can never ever steal my voice!
so shut up and sit down! (please)
I have a few things that need to be said
you can’t tell me how to heal
you can’t tell me how I feel
are you understanding that you can not steal
my voice is real!
~truly… a must listen:) such a great song! :)
