Do you stand up and say what you believe? Or do you hide?
Do you clearly state, write, advocate, and fight for that which you know in your soul to be true? Or do you let the moments, and the opportunities, pass you by?
Most importantly, you get to choose if your voice is heard. Your voice — whether those lines are bold or sublime, bright or muted. But most importantly — yours. Not somebody else’s. Yours.
Authentic. Or inauthentic. Brave or scared. Maybe fake or a cover. Or just frightened. You get to choose. But remember this: when we are brave, we inspire others. We can become light, if we so choose.
Speak. Or keep your peace.
Light or shadow: Decide.
