Thoughts of a Writer

 

'Ugh! This piece is a shit!'

I've heard many writers complain,

allowing the darkness of failure to engulf and drag them into their pit,

making them feel that their hard work has gone into nothing but vain.

 

They keep on comparing their works with someone else's

and I've seen their eyes filled with desire,

which I consider, is not for their best,

the desire of spreading their works like wildfire.

 

I don't understand why they start calling themselves a Downcast,

or a Loser, or even a Burden to this world,

because honestly, in such situations, all they need is to think vast,

and clear their minds of all the darkness curled.

 

But nothing like this happens in reality,

they fail to cope with their defeats,

categorising their own works as low quality,

they even forget that they have a heart which beats.

 

Later on, this phase of defeat, turns into something very dangerous.

A feeling we call Selfishness, arises in their heads,

and so whatever they think for others is malicious.

'Path of Crime', is the path on which they tread.

 

They start stealing others' works.

Evilness expands all over their souls,

and this crime becomes one of their quirks,

making it even more difficult to fill such holes.

 

So appreciate them whenever you are rewarded a chance.

Help them get over their quirks of stealing.

Keep trying and break their trance,

bring them back to a sane living.

 

Soon your eyes will flash open and you will realise,

that aprreciation is all that they needed,

to get back to their lives and idolise,

making them reach the heights, one would've never expected...
