Poem A Day: It Hurts

It hurts that I know so many people

Who have often praised my writing

And who cannot be bothered to

Read the poems I am trying to share.

.

I am sure that these same people,

Were I to somehow become famous,

Would come to me to shake my hand

And say that they always believed in me.

.

That’s hard to believe when all I ask

Is for a friendly eye to read my poems

And offer a word or two of feedback –

Even negative feedback can be good.
