The Sweet Smell of Rejection

Nothing like the sweet smell of rejection in the morning

To receive the call an early warning

Its not the right fit but I wish you the best

But if you had to receive a grade you failed the test

Refreshed I see it in a morning sigh

No more than a simple rejuvenating sign

That more must be done to push forward

No looking back or retracting your hand

Giving my best out there I cannot look back

The evening lines have been drawn in the sand

Take a breath and begin again

This will seem to happen every now and again

I take it as a compliment

That the successful plans have been laid

I will not give into some cheap demands

To jump at their will fall upon their command

People look for something to fill their own void

All the while they hold stiff while creativity is destroyed

Looking for something to replace the old

Will make the fillers seem out of place and cold

Wet and waiting on the driveway of replacement

Taking what just comes along seems way to complacent

They want someone who will fit the mold

Casting away the unique and the wanderers

The fearless and the bold

For someone who does not mind to grow mold

Upon their creative gears and will simply listen to their peers

Me that I am not and surely never will be

What will ever become of me I guess I will wait and see

As for now I am content on my bed of worthlessness

It does not fear me to be alone out here calling

Much better than rich and my creative mind mauling me

I recluse back to come back stronger

Eager to fight again

Rejection is nothing more

Than a reason to start again

One thought on “The Sweet Smell of Rejection

  1. Embracing Uncertainty Fearlessly

    Embracing
    uncertainty fearlessly
    is arousing
    rejection sweeps
    flowing easily
    As I become weak in the knees
    If it was easy
    then maybe
    the fight would
    not be fun
    life would be
    mundane
    and everyday
    I would bask in the sun
    but no it is not
    a boring old life
    the rejection I face
    uncertainty
    undermining strife
    Your point is well taken amusing indeed
    we must stay steady, clear headed
    focused to keep our heart centered
    and mind at ease.
    This fight is worth fighting.
