Living Anxiously

Location

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
