I really had hoped that I might have seen
Some comments from Faithwriters for me.
But itís OK, Iím not angry,
Well, a little, I guess, although
disappointed maybe better describes
This churning feeling I have inside.
Again, no one has reviewed my story
and it almost makes me sorry
that I work so hard to write
but I get no comments, despite
all the effort I put in,
and Iím sure that my story could win.
I've read the other entries, and I find
none that are so much better than mine.
I am a tiny bit angry Iíll admit,
Last week I even decided to quit,
But I thought Iíd try one more time,
And yes, I would like some cheese with my whine.
Still, I do think I have legitimate cause
To have the writing loser blahs.
Don't let the sun go down on your anger, God said,
So I have to get over it before I go to bed.
Hey really, itís all OK,
I'm sure I'll win another day,
but that doesn't rhyme,
and although a poem doesn't have to rhyme
all the time,
I like rhyming poetry the best,
but I think that like many of the rest
of the things I like to write and read,
many others won't agree with me.
I'll try not to be angry
because the sun soon will go down,
and by then my anger has to be gone.
So GET OVER IT, I say,
PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE
I'm sure that sometime soon Iím bound to place!
Or not, itís really hard to say.
Oh, look! I just got another review as I speak.
Iíll go to Faithwriterís and have a peek,
A second review for my story on sad!
Two reviews, thatís really not so bad.
Itís not that great, of course,
But it certainly could be worse,
And has been.
Many times Iíve just had one,
And some weeks Iíve even gotten none.
But then, I really just write my stories for fun,
Any comments are just icing on the cake
Itís all about sharing the things we create.
Well, look at that, the sunís almost gone
And now my anger is pretty much done.
But now I've gone and gotten stuck
In the rut
of speaking in rhyme
all of the time.
I have to find some way
To stop rhyming everything I say,
I think I better just stop right now,
So, Iíll just end by saying
