New Poem: Encouragement 1
This is an inspirational greeting card poem on the theme of "encouragement." As a poet and author, I face rejection often. Rarely does a day go by without receiving at least one rejection from a potential publisher. On average, I receive two to three, and my all-time daily rejection record is ten. This is rejection of my most creative work, and it is, therefore, difficult not to feel each rejection on a deeply personal level. The encouragement of my family and friends helps, but, most of all, it is belief in myself that keeps me going.
