I’ve heard these words more than I care to admit.
“Who the *&^% does she think she is?”
When I first opened my mouth to sing & realized I had a voice.
When I first decided that I wanted to DO something with that voice.
When I discovered I could dance.
When I chose to get on the stage.
When I started playing guitar.
When I became the first person in my immediate family to graduate high school.
When I became the first person in my family to go to college.
When I decided to GO for my dreams.
“Who the (*&% does she think she is?”
Sometimes these words were actually spoken to me.
More often they just reverberated in my head.
These words are the ROOT to keeping me stuck.
But I’m taking them back.
I’ll tell you who the fuck I AM.
