She Knew - Three Word Wednesday

Three Word Wednesday where you write something using the three prompt words.
This week's words are  ... Gait, Nudge and Ripen


The words had been planted
in the hope they might grow
and in time ripen as her belief
in who she was
and in time it told
and it showed
and she held herself tall
her gait proud
and people would look and nudge one another
and say such things as
"Who does she think she is?"
but she would just smile
and live her life
for she knew who she was
for the words had been planted.

People sometimes under estimate the weight of their words.How over time they can really build a person up, and help them to be what they will. I liked this alot, and thanks for the encouragement. You and you sis are awesome!

Must not judge ourselves through others words.... Its hard if the enemy resides in your mind..so self belief makes you walk like you are wearing a crown. Great poem and thought provoking.

She knew...and the hardest part is knowing. It takes time. You can't rush it. Your piece made me remember that. Thanks!
