I have me, an iron-willed heart

That truly I chose to only follow

Like a North star in my journey

.Naysayers will attempt sabotage


But- do not pity me when attacked

My critics will charitably offer me

As much doubt as I can choke on

In fear my triumph includes…them!

      1. So very true and it says more about their character too. That’s why as artists and creative folk, we must surround ourselves with people that do support us and cut ties with those that don’t. Lovely poetry.

  1. Beautiful piece. We all have our critics. We have to just write for ourselves and from our own hearts. Someone I love and respect in our community told me that recently. I am so glad she did. Hugs to you and your family. 🤗 Joni
