Hi! I write poetry, related or not to my life. So enjoy reading!
She was not much appreciated.
She only received compliments,
She only received praises,
When she was on top of her class.
When she had a high grade on her subjects.
When she was labeled as Salutatorian.
When she had received a medal.
What they didn't do was,
They didn't appreciate her efforts.
They didn't appreciate her restless nights studying.
They didn't appreciate her more.
Good thing was that,
She really didn't mind their negativity.
She just focused on people who appreciates her more.
And she was thankful for those people.
Appreciate each others efforts,
No matter how big or small it might be.
You'll never know,
Appreciating their efforts could be the only thing they needed to hear to live life more.

Rightly said! Actions speak louder than words! But sometimes a kind word can show the appreciation to lift somebody's morale in the life.

Just a motivation can uplift a weary soul and heart.

I truly believe that people never forget how you make them feel and it's only by lifting others up that we truly understand the meaning of life. Great writing.
