Years Of Rejection Have Not Defeated Me Poem by Shalom Freedman

Years Of Rejection Have Not Defeated Me

Rating: 5.0


Years of rejection have not defeated me
A lifetime of rejection has not defeated me
I continue to strive-
Am I simply a greater fool in old age,
Than I was in those years of strength
In which I got the same negative message?
Or am I a simple coward hiding in the repetition
Of his own obsession?
I do not know
I write my lines as a kind of question and hope
Perhaps somehow somewhere someone will find in them
A bit of revelation some consolation a reason for hope
I don't know
I write again this morning with the same simple meaning felt
AsI have done all these years.
