Greatness - Poem by Stanley Cooper


Great minds think alike, they say
When I put my thoughts on display
For all the world to see
No-one seems to think like me? ! !

Perhaps greatness is just a label
Or found in just creative fables
If based in only fiction stories
I’ll never reach my greater glories

    Greatness should never be confused with 'popularity'. Greatness does not rely on the opinion of others, but rather on the qualities of the man. Consider how many talented writers and artists never achieved 'popularity' during their lifetimes, yet they were truly great. Your poem is so unique and nicely written I really enjoyed reading it. Thanks. (Report) Reply
