Never Underestimate Mothers

 

“You have such pretty ears!”

“You’ve such a pretty nose!”

Phrases stick –

They pop up now and then

To reinforce a confidence

You didn’t know was present.

You had problems, your neuroses,

Yet two things you never had to think about

Were

Ear

And nose;

Hurdles you would never need to

Struggle over,

Scuffle through.

So if your mommy gave you

Any words of praise,

That phrase has tooled you

For the good.
