Receiving criticism!

How often its said, "He'll fly off the handle!"

But, how often is it said about me, by me?

Yes, I fully recognize this unfortunate tendency

about myself.  I'm "Quick to Anger, Slow to Understand!"

I've tried to not be this way; I've tried so hard,

but all to no avail, although, to be fair to myself,

I have gotten much better.  Now, I calmly listen

or read what the other person thinks, carefully reason

through their thought process, before ridiculing

their bullshit reasons for daring to criticize anything

I've written; I mean, who in the hell do they

think they are?  Just because they're too fricking

stupid to even have one intelligent thing to say,

about anything, is that any reason to lash out

at me?  Is it my fault they're about as smart

as a rotting stump?  I mean, really, save your idiotic

comments for your diary, Forrest Gump; tell somebody who

gives a shit, because your slow-witted dog is barking

up the wrong tree, there, Moronotron!

I like it too.
I try to pretend to take criticism well,
but I don't really.I wish my skin was thicker than some critics.

I've gotten better at it; when I first started writing, I was much more apt to act like the guy in the poem; thanks for commenting!
