One may only be a voice in a million, but each voice is heard. And that voice can’t be taken from you. Even if there is oppression, a voice is always heard. Maybe not out loud, but you can’t take a person‘s voice. For not only does it come from the mouth, but every action a person does, is their voice. It is what is making them heard day in and day out.
I was listening to Natasha Bedingfield‘s new song “Strip Me” and the lyrics are quite empowering to any individual. I think it may become my own anthem to listen to when I feel like I’m not being heard. For if you were to strip everything away from a person, the things that make them who they are, what is left is their voice. And you can have your pride taken away, and you can be ‘shut out’ by people, but you can still be heard. You can scream it out. And your voice is still there. Maybe not out loud, but it is still there.
And how important our voice is. It is what has made some things so great in this world. Certain voices were heard, and they were from people who might have been considered a nobody, but they were heard, and they mattered.
We all matter. We are all important. Each person is unique and has amazing things to offer, and we are being heard.
You may not think you are. Even at times, I don’t think I am being heard, but every thing you or I do is being ‘heard’ from somebody. If that weren’t so, then there wouldn’t be the statement “Actions Speak Louder Than Words”. Our actions how we direct our lives our one of our biggest voices. People see what we do, and they evaluate our lives. And it is an influence on others. We are being heard. And our voice is being heard.
Maybe this post isn’t the most eloquent one in the word, and certainly not long, but I feel the song says more than I could ever do.
Just remember no one can take your voice.
