Shel Silverstein Shouldn’t

Shel Silverstein Quote-SBG PublishingWhen someone tells you – you shouldn’t, when someone tells you – you can’t, when someone tells you – never, listen carefully – to that voice inside that tells you what could be. All writers face rejection; all artists are told “no”. These are the moments when you choose to listen to yourself and move forward or listen to others and stop. Don’t stop creating. The world needs your point of view

If Shel Silverstein mustn’t, didn’t, wouldn’t, couldn’t, shouldn’t have….then the world of poetry would have missed out on one extraordinary point of view! Children would have missed out on the joy of looking at the worlds that exist Where the Sidewalk Ends, when we start Falling Up and when we leave a Light on in the Attic.
