I understand it,
What you are saying to me.
So I say - thank you.
Not just for your stories I am sure anyone who has ever written a review on anything can relate to this - so like everyone on fictionpress and fanfiction. I am glad you wrote this. Keep your creativity strong.

A thank you poem for reviewers? I have reviewed many short stories in the past 9 years (very few poems) Reviewers do not expect to find masterpieces of literature..thats what book stores and libraries are for. Often they find interesting and creative work ... most in need of polishing but many surprisingly well done. The object of reviewing is not to find entertainment but to encourage creative activity and show some appreciation for the efforts of young people. Some of those that I reviewed years ago (mostly junior high students) are now nearing or past graduation from college. Some have maintained email contact all that I knew have "outgrown" fiction press but not outgrown creative writing. This is ample reward for reading/reviewing stories. Thank you for the "thank you!
(adding you to author list) Don.
