Even though you want to be read
And you fall into your bed
With your dreams in shreds
And the realization
That the very next time
You log on to your account
Your comments amount
To zero read
If it made sense in your head
Know it does not matter if it was not read 
Because critics are not necessarily always right

    when poems from your soul/unroll like a scroll/as your pen writes them down though unread/your poems will extol/your efforts in whole/as phoenix arise from the dead

    Nicely said Christopher! Feedback is important but there comes a time in life when a poet gains confidence in his abilities and knows where he stands whether or not he gets feedback or worse, if he gets negative comments. Well written piece!
