Tell us about the harshest, most difficult to hear — but accurate — criticism you’ve ever gotten. Does it still apply?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us HARSH.
“You never finish what you start,”
And isn’t that the awful truth?
I love the excitement of something new
till it fades away, like memories of my youth
When life was full of wonder
when every day was filled with awe
Then one day the colors faded
Left baffled by the truth of what I saw
And so the tasks remained undone
challenges left unfinished
but still I continued on with new things
whirling like a dervish
For it’s the excitement that I crave
That addict’s high that I need
if only it never faded away
In this life, I’ll actually succeed.
