It Is Hard Being Smart

Rating: 3.8

i must hide it) lost in it(s mind..
and try not to offend those..
whom are so much... more smarter..
and so very I sleep...
and forever lost....
back into the deepest part 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.

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!

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!

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!
