Love and Acceptance

Happiness took flight
As soon as another rejection landed
For they cannot occupy the same space
Can they?
It is not possible to find joy
In the indications that you are not good enough
My message a passenger
For I seem to have one no more
Pointless dabbling in words
The hobby they all thought
It took my compass with
All momentum suddenly hits reverse
I apparently have nothing to say
No graceful flap of a bird’s wing
But bundled into a tin can
Packed for another destination
I hope someone can use the happy thoughts
That no longer inhabit
The darkness that has taken over my mind
How do I grow from criticism
When it just confirms
What I always believed of myself?
Love and acceptance
Are my first lessons
