My Greatest Regrets
All the times I held back
All the times I chose not to live loudly
so as not to attract attention;
All the times I silenced my own voice,
stifled my own expression,
sat still instead of danced,
thought instead of spoke,
let pride & ego reign over full on freedom;
All the times I was less than myself
for the sake of:
a false & shallow self-made perception of myself from the outside in.
These are my greatest regrets.
