A lot of people from my childhood, believe it a dream deferred.
Did I take the easy way out by not becoming that lawyer, we all knew I would be?
MNL explained it best when it said I am an advocate rooting for the under dog. He also said in that same voice that my mother was the litigator and I find that fitting.
Michael says in theater and culture, we must give a voice to the voiceless.
That has been my story.
I didn’t defer my dream.
I refined it.
The word I didn’t know then was ADVOCATE.
I suppose its only the obvious thing. I suppose that’s why I don’t do subtle, why I say it all.
Because I fear the detrimental results if I don’t say it.
So I must. I will speak out loud. and I will never regret it.
I have yet to regret anything in my life this far.
Even the most haunting nightmares, make me the woman that I am.
So I don’t wish the story of Daniel away.
I don’t wish the death of James away.
I don’t wish any part of it away.
I breath life into those stories.
And I will tell them until I can no longer speak and even then, I will sign them out in the biggest gestures.
