Eternal Pain

So I would like to ask you, Teenink,
a very simple question:
Why does it take so long to get my work approved?
The burning annoyance is spreading throughout me like a very bad infection.

As of now, I have submitted four pieces of writing to your –almost- awesome website.
And every time I check my account, my emotions are immediately deterred.
Because I am slapped in the face with the exact same message, written beside my un-published works:
“This article is pending approval from our (apparently busy) editors”

The same irritation takes over me and I holler at my computer,
“GOODNESS, I WANT TO SHARE MY WRITING WITH THE WORLD!!”
Unfortunately, my computer doesn’t hear what I’m saying,
and I’m left motionless at my computer, the innards of my brain violently swirled.

So those of you have gone through this also, you are not alone.
If you even made it to the end of this poem, you have clearly experienced the same thing on your own.
And if you feel that you know my situation, one of constant torment and pitiful sorrow,
Please, please, please share my pain with me, and comment below. ;)
