A Few Kind Words Poem by Shalom Freedman

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 Naseer

HEY! I wanna vote for your poem dude. It was good.10! Rate it a ten, PoemHunter. Short poems are the best. That's what I like to do. Come with the all the good stuff right away, then stop. Don't ramble on like some of these idiots. Great jobbo shalom. (I just invented a word...'jobbo') Use it, I don't care. 'S'

It is the truth, we live to be read, we poets. We crave to know our words have had impact.. Great idea for a short poem. Well done!
