 Elsie`s Poetry



Bottom of the heap bottom of the pile
When feeling like this you just can`t smile,
Is it so hard to see things from the other side?
Seems that way so your hurt you just can`t hide.

Your feelings are not so important it would seem
And this does very little for your self-esteem,
So where do you stand in the scheme of things?
Many doubts is what this thought brings.

Stop and ask yourself why they feel this way
Could it be they feel you don`t care what they say?
Whatever they say is `cause they care for you
Are you too blind to see, haven`t you a clue?

Don`t just listen to them but hear what they say
Your understanding could be the saving of the day,
Analyse their feelings before you say a word
What you say will tell them that they were heard.

Turn the pile over and make the bottom the top
Then their feeling of low self-esteem will surely stop,
Make them see you understand how they feel
Make them smile and never repeat the ordeal.
