Geniuses In Families - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

geniuses in families
are few and far between,
like life trees
that haven't been seen.
All comes and goes
and gives of its fruit,
but nobody knows
the way of its root.

Maybe you'll be a star
in something you do,
become who you are
to get your life through;
but that's the ordinary
and not a brilliance,
what life comes to be
given its chance.

All is here for a play
steps to life's direction,
time has its own way
in every selection.
We are for awhile
make the best of all,
you have your style
smarts could be its call!
