Praise - Poem by Salt Cloud


Do not underestimate

the power of praise

It carries in its soothing stream

a priceless balm

cements the fragile self-esteem

of youth.

Harsh words for failed attempts

will split the heart

and leave it leaking courage

all life long.

If you would raise them strong

and unafraid

would teach them to themselves be true

then give the gift of praise

when such a gift is due.
