Beating a dream killer

Words her weapon of choice
To bludgeon to death
The hopes and dreams
Of an aspiring talent
Only criticism and disdain
Spewing from her
Encouragement and praise
As foreign as her smile
No suggestion for improvement
Just destruction and disdain
But he rose from the ashes
With perseverance and love
An attitude of possibility
He reached for the stars
Worked with his gift
And left her words in his dust.
