Writers Feelings

Why do I even bother trying?

They've been very complimentary

proving to some to be more than satisfactory

And still not even a mention

Instead of getting hopes up, I should exercise caution

Over 2 years and so many attempts

My creative juices often end up spent

And still not even a mention

Why didn't I stick to my decision

Why put up the effort for not so much as an "attaboy"

Especially seeing something fun end up with no joy

And still not even a mention

Is it because of the more than fifty with no attention

The death of a dream, where ideas rot

Every bit of effort in a land that time forgot

And still not even a mention

I guess I don't qualify under some stipulation

Get up and walk away

Resist the urge to come back one day

There'll never be a mention

Amid constant failure and repeated rejection

sad poetry

About the Creator

Jason Ray Morton

I have always enjoyed writing and exploring new ideas, new beliefs, and the dreams that rattle around inside my head. I have enjoyed the current state of science, human progress, fantasy and existence and write about them when I can.
