Brilliance - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Brilliance.
Some are told they have this,
When identified they may be different.
And then the pressure becomes theirs,
To make others believe and also be aware...
Of brilliance in their presence.
To stare but gone unshared.

Brilliance.
Some are told they have this,
When identified they may be different.
And then the pressure becomes theirs,
To make others believe and also be aware...
Of brilliance in their presence.
To stare but gone unshared.

'Please.
You have me subdued and I am not use to that.
Who are you someone new with no rules attached?

Is there someone here that can remove this person,
Out of my light?
Come show them their dimming significance,
Is not as brilliant as mine and what they do is not alright.
Not in my light!

Please.
You have me subdued and I am not use to that.
Who are you someone new with no rules attached? '
