#BIGRead14: Speaking Day (Read by @rosieswiss)



It’s my turn to speak today.
And I am certain of two things.
that I will feel underprepared.
that I will be inclined to say too much.

Moderate my anxieties.

Consolidate my thoughts.
Calm my mind and let
the words come along in an orderly but not entirely
predictable fashion.

Spare them my more banal, self-­indulgent,
flippant or half­baked thoughts.
Keep me from rant, can’t and claptrap.

Let my words be authentic and true,
heartfelt and clear.
Let them be like opening curtains,
clearing mist, ripening fruit,
refreshing rain.

Let them be the cause of someone else’s
