Silencing Critics

Poetry By: Mezquiteno

A short poem I wrote for critics of my work..

Voices all try to reach me,

Some trying to inspire me,

Some ignorantly hoping to advise me.

I hear them all,

I hear all to me call.

" You should try to write this way," some said,

I ignore them and write in my own style instead.

" You can learn much things from me," one says,

I respond, " I don't want to be you, nor walk your ways."

The voices seem louder and louder as I ignore them,

In return I sing them a part of my " Arrogance anthem."

Many voices, many opinions,

Do they not understand that only I am ruler of my dominions?

How is it that you give criticism,

When you yourself lack intellectualism?
