Yolo-Poem

by Samuel De Lemos

Exasperated:
Sometimes rejection hurts.
I have tough skin.
I have worldly experience.
I know that life’s hard.
I’ve been around the block twice.
It’s just another day in the life of an artist.
YOLO
You only live once.
Repeat after me:
It’s their loss, not mine, and
what Nietzsche said,
What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.
