Words Like Seeds (1185)
Words are like seeds. They all grow. You tell someone something good, and they think about it. They smile. And those seeds are watered. But you must know, the same thing happens when you say something bad. And I’m not sure why, but those seeds, man, do they have the power to grow fast. You can get yourself so entangled in their stems and leaves and branches, and soon, there you are, just stuck in them. I don’t want you to be stuck there. I know what they said is hurtful. And it makes me sad... well, truthfully, it makes me angry. And I think maybe you need a little truth now. You need to know that you are really something. And I’m not going to waste my time here saying “Oh, they are just ignorant, or living in fear...” Whatever. What I know for sure is, they are wrong. They are simply wrong. I know you. I see you. I see your heart. You are beautiful, inside and out. Done. That is the truth. I will never tire of telling you the truth. And I will cut every one those hurtful words down. I will pull out every weed. You are free. They say the truth will do that, and I guess they are right. You are beautiful. You are bound by nothing. The wonderful thing about good words - the good seeds - you can just let them grow. And on the days that you need a little reminder, there they are - in full bloom. Just like you.
