Do you see me?

Do you see me…
As the woman I am?
Standing before you
With my heart in my hand,
Holding it out to you,
This beautiful glow,
Showing you a vulnerability
That even I didn’t know.

Do you run?
Do you hide?
Do you get scared
And make me want to cry?
Oh, please don’t feel so bad,
For it was completely my choice.
A song to sing
Is so much better
Than having no voice
