Bouncing Back - Poem by Alem Hailu Gabre Kristos

Bouncing back
From cold shoulders
And many a rejection,
Resilient, I throw
My full weight
To get
What me await
In the storeroom
Of fate!

Topic(s) of this poem: fight, patience


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Rejections or cold shoulders doesn't mean failure but the twist of fate.Even the most successful didn't find the ardours track of life a rose bed.
