Living Anxiously


I sat here thinking



How am I going to write this?


I don't hide behind a mask


I'm proud of who I am


but then, I read your blog post


you guys like video submissions


I swallowed in terror


and then I realized


I was terrified of being judged on the sound of my voice


or the appearance of my face
