There are times when we are doing something and we are very confident in ourselves, but those around us put us down and tell us to give up.

Rootless Life, by J. W. Cassandra. The poem I wrote yesterday morning and haven’t put into any of my volumes. yet. The versions alter a bit from each other in Hungarian and in English.
