“Rejection”

“Rejection”

I
embrace it
understand it
respect it
accept it
practice it,
knowing
I need not
be at war
with myself
or another
when it’s
in effect.

I
master it
watch it
bow to my will
each time it
receives not
the reaction it
anticipates.

Toted as a
fate
to which we
all must bow, one
of our greatest
fears, rejection
is my
professor
and I
its eminent scholar.
