OH! I LOVE this poem! You cover all the bases with your content, the rhyme and meter are wonderful, and the artwork is hilarious! I'd say this is a shoe-in, but the booth is so unpredictable. Anyway, here's wishing you the very best of luck!

Absolutely, and this is a great place for it. I think very few judge others, as to 'content' here, and I've found my reviewers most helpful with my punctuation. Anything is possible if we try!!! Great entry, blessings...

Good advice given here on writing, perseverance, reading, editing, and reviewing. An important part of creating a successful piece is respect for the reader/reviewer and that is, as you mention here, proper grammar and elimination of SPAG. Marilyn

The rhyming in this Success Is The Issue writing prompt entry was very well done, Anonymous Poet.
I couldn't agree more with the powerfully positive message you've conveyed here.
The only difference between a published author and an amateur is the published author never gave up trying.
Best wishes to you in the contest.

You've created a successful rhyme.
These lines stand out: 'Let out that writer, longing to be heard,
just be yourself, you'll fly like a bird.'- This tells the reader to write from the heart and they'll do well.
The image shown supports the poem. Some days I feel like biting my laptop.
Best of luck to you in the contest.
Thanks for sharing your Success.
Good luck with your future writing.

So much the way I feel at times. Fun selection for the picture. I think the ending might have been stronger if it ended "you'll fly with every word." or something like that. Good effort.

Great pep talk, you inspired me to go for my pen. Your poem is quite the contender. Great picture, we all get frustrated writing. Your poem flows, is easy to relate to, and just a joy to read. I can't find anything negative to say. Good luck and thanks for sharing.
