What can I say about stuttering?
How it has kept me from making new friends?
How it has kept me from asking questions?
No, I do not think it was my stuttering that kept me from doing those things
It was I.
I am too scared to attempt to do any of those things,
I fear that I am going to feel embarrassed or someone is going to look at me funny.
Why am I so afraid to let people know who I really am?
Why would I care what people think?
It still hurts
The pain is still there
So why wouldn't I care?
I need to train myself to take chances and let it all hang out
It is not going to get any better if I let the words silence me
I'm tired of feeling this way
Let me out of this darkness and into the happiness of the light.
