Taking a stand

My voice is now unmuted, today I took a stand. Those walls I broke down, this path I hadn't planned. My whole life I've been silenced, the shame built up inside. No longer will I be quiet, no longer I will hide. I'm standing on my own two feet, my story I will tell. For I am not scared no more, no longer in my shell. I understand I've made mistakes, my brains been out of sync. So now it's time to say my truth to fix the missing link. I urge you all to stand up tall, be proud of who you are, for no one can take your light away, you are the brightest star.

    Hang in there Ruby! I know you can get through this! Keep your spine straight standing the tallest of all and shine the brightest light to blind the darkest of them all!
