Finding My Voice:
(Living My True Life)
Written and performed by Doreen Firestone
with Ann Zalkind at the piano
What do you do when you find yourself
in the middle
of Middle Age
and you still haven’t “Made It”?
And you realize the plan of success
you mapped out
with your ten-year-old mind
can’t play itself out in real time?
Yeah, when you’re terrified
of speaking your truth,
yet even more terrified
of dying lying,
and never having lived your truth?
Well, you write an autobiographical, theatrical, musical journey
of your quest
to your true greatness,
and you hope your plunge into vulnerability
inspires others to join
in this Great Adventure.
Come, climb aboard this roller coaster ride of self-discovery
to live your true life!
