Advice For Better Living - Poem by Cecelia Weir

Whether its your talent
To be ignorant.
Or whether its your ignorance
That makes your talent.
Do not waste your talent
On your ignorance.
But acknowledge it
For your intelligence.
And it will become
A great
And beautiful endowment.
That makes you
A wonderful person.

    My only conflictwith this one was whether to give it a 9 or a 10.
    I went the cautious route and gave it a 9. If I am right, this writer
    has several treasures of verse in her collection that probably surpass this one by a margin. If she does, then I have been wise.
