Bonus Poem of the Week: The ABC Poem for the Oft-Rejected Author

The ABC Poem for the Oft-Rejected Author
December 16, 2015

Aggravation,
Blundering,
Cursing with
Disgust,
Everybody telling you what to do and why you must.

Frustration,
Grieving—
How are you going to cope?
Irritated with the lack of
Justice and hope.

Killing time in a search deprived of all fruit,
Longing for a bright tomorrow for which there’s no proof.

Many
Nasty
Obstacles
Posted in your path.
Quitting’s not an option, though, so
Recollect and relax

So that someday becomes one day—
Tomorrow, even, perhaps,
Unless you love drinking
The venom of those who want to collapse

The wonderful world you’ve crafted over
X amount of years.
You owe it to yourself for all your hard work, my dear.

Now catch some Z’s and prep yourself for another day.
I’ve faith that you’ll make it soon enough some way.

  1. Very creative way to show your appreciation for your fellow authors, Dustin. Here’s hoping that you get to join the Officially Published Elite yourself one day. You deserve it!

    • I appreciate your feedback. Feel free to come on back for more poetry like this in the weeks to come.

      Thanks for your well wishes, too, regarding my publication future. I’m looking forward to that day as well! 😀
