The Least You Can Do is Defend Yourself!
What would you do if you were sitting on a park bench, minding your own business, perhaps working on a poem, your journal wide open, and someone sat next you, glanced down at your notes, and said, "You stupid fool! Why are you even trying to do that? You're wasting your time. Give up! You really think you can come up with something anyone wants to read?" Then he stands up, throws his head back, and laughs as he walks away.
What would you do in a case like that? Would you stay quiet? Would you believe him and start doubting yourself? Would you stop writing poetry? Or would you say, "Who the hell are you? Mind your own business, and get the hell out of here!"
