A Few Kind Words


A FEW KIND WORDS

A few kind words
From a stranger far away
Makes my poem mean more
Than I can by myself make.

Poem of the evening
Little lines
Go forth into the hearts and minds
Of those kind readers
Who care.

    A very unique poem of its own type depicting the importance
    of words a writer uses in his or her creation and that is applauded
    by true readers. A good content is worth reading and should be
    admired considering all aspects of it and capturing the true
    essence. These few kind words become pearlescent when some
    good reader understands every bit of them and conceive even those
    hidden meanings that sometimes the writer might not have in his or
    her mind while creating the poem.....

    Best Wishes
