Very good! I liked the way you brought the emotions of a writer into your poetry. How many times have we as writers been as discouraged as the MC of this poem seems to be? And how many times have we as writers had the feeling of being REJECTED!...Helen
Love the double meaning in your title, echoed in the line "Rejection itself rejected". Perfect.
I enjoyed this very much. One does not need be a writer to feel the pain of rejection.

I especially related to the last stanza.

I believe that every writer who reads this poem should copy this last stanza and tape it to their computer screens. "...they that compare themselves amongst themselves are unwise..." That's Bible.

Your ending says it all.

God is our greatest Inspiration and critic.
He NEVER responds to our manuscript with a rejection stamp. Thank God!

Well written and inspiring.
Well done!
What a cute poem, I love the message in it.
Good message every writer needs to hear!
I think this poem could be even more inspiring if you added more imagery to it. Otherwise, I greatly enjoyed this - I, too, really appreciated the line "Rejection itself rejected" - what a powerful line!
good article for spurring writers to continue on no matter what.
