Dark Day


I think most writers have a dark day,
A day when the quill will not quiver,
Or a day where the work does not stir.
***
A day where you question your reasons,
Where no writing seems good enough,
And every day feels like the off season.
***
When you apply yourself endlessly,
And see nothing but a sea of rejection,
These are the hardest days to me.
***
No recognition from competitions,
Fading slowly and silently into obscurity,
Where you think your work ought to be.
***
Without some kind of recognition,
Writers so often loose their passion,
And see no point in carrying on.
***
Show appreciation to those you like,
Something to give that dopamine spike,
And let them know you are there and care.
