Sing like No One's Listening

Published on 14 March 2023 at 17:56

Knowing my voice is soft, I sometimes sing softer in anticipation of someone who will most definitely sing over me. Why do I do this? I don't know. I guess I have always been taught that loud voices get heard...

Sometimes I unknowingly surrender. Because if no one cares to listen, why sing at all? But then again,

if I don't sing, no one can listen. 


A part of me wants to keep my melody to myself. But, then the other part of me knows that I need to express my voice as much as I need air to breathe. Because if I stop breathing, I stop trying. 

And I'm not ready to give up something worth fighting for - my voice; I am not Ariel...


Whether I am heard or not is besides the point. It is the fact that I choose to sing. 

Sing my heart out like no one is listening. That allows me to inhale. That allows me to exhale. 

Only then do I feel whole.
