How Do You Take Criticism

Written by: Glenn Sentes

Is it like resisting an ice cream when you have sensitive teeth?
Or eating chocolate bars when you got diabetes?

How do you take criticism?
Is it like accepting a gift from a friend?
Or taking a white rose from a sorry fiend?

How do you take criticism?
Do you retaliate by looking for his flaws?
Or just smile and stoop?

How do you take criticism?















(Inspired by a first negative reaction received in PS on my poem “You Don’t Know My Poetry”. Someone named Sylvia called my poem “half-baked”
