Evolving
Words of encouragement
spoken fluently, spoken constantly
but yet we refuse to believe.
We put ourselves down,
in fear of rising and failing.
We bury ourselves in the burrow,
as we are furry little animals
scampering away from the light.
Why can't we just accept
and begin to soar as birds,
along the open,
empty, clear sky?
We are afraid of failure,
or of getting too carried away
on these highs of life,
highs of compliments-
Until they come from a new soothing voice.
Then reconsidering comes into place,
leaving us as mere tiger or wolf cubs,
having full potential to grow and succeed.
