It Is Hard Being Smart


i must hide it) lost in it(s mind..
and try not to offend those..
whom are so much... more smarter..
and so very deep..as I sleep...
and running..off forever lost....
back into the deepest of the woods..
and this her forest..she shows me..
and she is pleased...that I trust her..
and I am only happy that she is happy....
and walking around her forest...I find her..
home where she lives...and knocking....
she opens her door too him....and she..
recognizing his genius....
and being now his woods.....then..
looks down at his mismatched socks...
and knowing thus as she does..
she slips him in to hers...
and like a glove it's..
universe...spiraling out word....
becomes a little bit milky.. because of it..
and I thank you....whom ever you are.

    See? I looked at it. I think it's over my head. Got lost after the sparrow. But still.
    Don't know why you'd assume ridiculous things if your that smart. nevertheless. I digress. (Report) Reply

    This poem has such an honesty of expression that it is inherently very smart piece of work! What a smart discovery it is to understand and manifest that it is hard to be situationally smart all the time! (Report) Reply

    One of the things I learned... It's so hard to be a genius... You'll either die early or become a crazy old fool... so it's better to be just subtly smart! Nice post! (Report) Reply

    Candidly and self-reflectively written; mentally original with gripping suggestions and insinuations. Indeed, wisdom begins with self-knowledge, and only the 'innocent eyes' see clearly. Great job! (Report) Reply

    Anything worth smart is hard. That is why I read your words. To get smart from what is cleverly hard. :) (Report) Reply

    you are meerly as smart as you choose to be....i know people who could be intelligent if they tried...but they don't.....even geniuses aren't smart if they can't show it...at least in my mind.....but nicely said

    Sometimes its hard to be smart - I know I definately am thick in lots of ways and kick self after - like it but thing u got to remember you got over the nervous breakdown so that not a negative it actually is a positive - guess everything has other meaning

    take care
    hugs

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
