The Whispers Said

Regina Puckett


The whispers said I wasn’t good or smart enough

So I decided, what could it hurt to call their bluff

I ran the good-race as fast I could every day

Until the doubters had nothing else to say

I’m as good as the rest of this sorry world

And I’m no longer that scared, little girl
