her words struck me like lightning.
passion and strength erupted from her booming voice.
it was beautiful and terrifying all at once.
(WHY ARE YOU SO WEAK?)
it was at that moment
with me sitting on my bed
staring intently at the slam poet on my laptop screen
that i decided i wanted to be on that screen.
(YOU’RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH SILLY)
i wanted to feel
(THINGS YOU WILL NEVER BE)
could i do it?
I CAN AND I WILL.
