She speaks to me fondly
of passions and talents,
of guitars and stars,
with such breathless intensity
then stops short and
for speaking at all.

All because somewhere in her life,
someone she loved broke her heart
by ignoring
her beautiful words
and telling her to
shut up,
keep it down,
nobody cares.

People aren’t born sad.
We make them that way.
You are all so beautiful and so gifted and so talented. Please don't listen to the world when they deride you and let you down. I pray that you all speak your minds and are welcomed and loved for it by someone you hold dear. :heart:

Thank you! Huggle! 
I don't get so much shut up as that glazed look people give when they don't care what you are talking about, but the feeling and reaction is the same.

It is quite a sweet and soft spoken work from you :) long time no see! Sweet in its meaning and execution - it does hold quite the truth.

I have drawn a little something, based on what you've written. Would you mind if I share the link to your work with the art?

It's sad, because that's completely true. We come into full bursting, full of hope , of youth and joy.

How long we can stay that way is another matter altogether...
