Say it!

Whispering winds of thought
An idea to mention in passing
Compliment and encourage
Passing breeze dissipates
As quickly as it blew in
Forgotten behind the tongue
But do you realize the effect
When those words make their way
Beyond the tip of the tongue
To the soul that is a master
In the art of self-berate
Destroying possibility in fear
Your titbit of support
No cost to you to give
Worth more than a million bucks
To the heart of the suffocating
The small release of the noose
Strangling their talents and ability
With the ropes of doubt
That your hope has unbound
And given a second breath

      1. That is so strange. WordPress told me my reply failed.
        Hahaha! I can only imagine the cats. I’m from South Africa, so no snow here. We were having a scorching day and now one of our afternoon thunderstorms is coming in which the cats are extremely unimpressed with. Enjoy the snow.
