Is This A Poem Or A Quote?
Reading this I couldn’t determine if it was supposed to be a poem or someone just giving advice. I can just imagine this person drinking a glass of wine in front of a fireplace saying these words of wisdom. But is it viable as a poem?
So I was running through social media trying to find something inspiring or just intriguing to write about. I saw Chrissy Teigen’s tweet about being buried in eyelash extensions. But didn’t feel that was a viable topic, or is it?
Anywho I ran across these words and couldn’t figure out if it was viable as a poem. What do you think?
Don’t expect your efforts to be appreciated, your genius to be discovered, your love to be understood. Stop turning on your emotional television to watch the same program over and over, the one that shows how much you suffered from a certain loss: this is poison, nothing else.
