Rejection Poem by Susan Williams


Rating: 5.0

Rejection is pain
pure and simple
impure and complicated
doesn't matter
rejection is pain
and nobody on earth is exempt from it
and I doubt there is any relief from the hurt
except the passage of time and the pen in a poet's hand.

Writing can heal to some extent but it is no magician's wand we wield! Great poem, Susan

If it were, it would be a billionaire's pen! ! ! But at least we can write it out of our situation! ! ! ! !

Part Two- -I was talking about the heart being rejected by a lover or a friend or a family member- - it is a soul-damaging thing to happen, damning if happens over and over and over. The best salve is that found in forgiveness. Thank you my friend, I will come to you for more comforting words if my books get the thumbs down! ! ! !

Part One- - Soran, I wasn't talking about that horrid kind of rejection! ! ! I haven't reached the point of finding an agent and waiting for the rejections slips... but the series will be published I tell myself.

Do not worry, maybe publishing houses look at your novel from a profit or commercial perspective, and this is not evidence of its badness. I hope to see your name among international novelists.
