TITLE: Leave Your Bellyaching Blues Behind

I now see the fighter
Inside of each writer
No matter your gender
Please strive to stay tender

Be it Lady or Lad
Donít ever be sad
Remember your couth
And let joy be your truth

Stand by rejections
Make no exceptions
For always they come
Now be a good chum

Take each review
Donít ever be blue
But in your great stride
Remember your pride

Lift up your chin
Remember youíll win
So never, give up
Reward is your cup

Creative and deep
At times, we do weep
Yes, it is so, we all get depressed
And yet I still know, we also get blessed

I beg from the heart
To do your small part
Discard your vast sulk
And remove all your bulk

Lighten your load
And change your mode
But if you must wine
Youíll always be blind


Grief and duress
Unhealthy distress
They take a great toll
And hinder the sole

So why are you down and ever so bleak?
Youíll grow and youíll learn from each ones critique

Very good. No truer words were ever spoken. Wise writers learn from critiques from others.

I truly enjoyed your poem. You've written it in a gentle, kindred, like-hearted way. I identified myself in the thoughts you've written.

Thank you for the good challenge! I will move on, and "be of good cheer!"

Interesting. I liked your last line the best because it's something I've learned myself.
