A Speaking Guide

You don’t have to say the best things,

Or profound things.

Your words don’t need to be guided, my love.

Silver-tongued or simple speech,

Just say sincere things.

Say all the words your heart feels and your head braces for you to choke on–

Speak like your heart took root in your vocal chords,

like the softest parts of you are a symphony,

and your truth is the conductor.

The world awaits your magnum opus.
