“You will amount to nothing in life”, those are just words, right?
But they have immensely ruined my outlook on the future
They continuously shatters the glimmer of hope within the depths of my soul
The idea of the future that once shone brighter than the galaxy is now a distant memory
Oh! Words what have you done?

“Be silent or let your words be worth more than silence”
It is in that silence that I found the words that mattered to me more than the critics did
Words that quenched every ounce of thirst that I felt
Words that soothed my wounded heart and weighed the burden down
“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
