When a compliment is rejected
Don’t become morose and dejected
Your words are meant as a gift
To give someone else a gentle lift.
Your words might mean more than you know
Sometimes people aren’t ready to show
That vulnerable side that touches a soul
They aren’t quite ready for that rabbit hole.
Walking around with wounds deeply hidden
Where compliments and kindness are forbidden
Not only is this sad – it’s a travesty
Open a little – for the world to see.
We all have beauty that is unique
An attitude might need a little tweak
Next time you hear a word so kind
I hope you’ll keep THANKS in mind.
