Unsolicited, Unflattering Literary Advice

He advised me your rhyming stuff is not good enough
Quite lacking in finesse and overall rough
Yours will not be remembered as a literary name
Nor you will never know of an enduring fame
Free advice from a poetry loving man with a uni degree
That i could only take as a put down of me
Though his comments any hope of literary success in me did not raise
Sometimes criticism serves one far better than praise
The words of a wise person i do recall
You may well win some but you cannot win them all
To most people unsolicited, unflattering literary advice
To the feelings can be hurtful and not at all nice
From one i meet often though not every day
And maybe for me it is better this way.
