We’ve all heard the old adage that actions speak louder than words, but in some circumstances, a caring word is just what a person needs. In times when emotional distress is at its greatest, a comforting word is often the only thing that can bring a person any solace. When someone close to me is struggling emotionally, I often find it difficult to say the right thing. But I obviously don’t want to ignore the person entirely.
In these situations, I typically turn to inspirational poems. No matter what the person is going through, you will indubitably be able to find a poem that resounds with their current state of mind. And while poems certainly can’t remedy the root of the problem, they can help people develop a more optimistic outlook of the situation
