dear monday me / april 19 2010

19 Apr

sometimes, you tell yourself, it’s best to just sit this one out,

let the choir handle the a cappella verse.

you aren’t sure your shaky squeaks have a place in the harmony.

others are certain.
strong.
on key.

maybe humming is more appropriate for a voice such as yours.
it’s lovely, in its own way.
but just
a little
off.

there are times for humming, and for listening to the space between notes,
but when a song sneaks up from your soul – wily and unwavering,

you should sing.

whatever notes your little voice can carry – keyless, erratic, drawn awry by those around you.
take a spoonful of certainty to wash away the woe, and let your melody find its place in the song.
