Life Doesn'T Always Go My Way - Poem by Emmanuela Petit Frere

I used to think
I have the answer to everything
until the day my best were defeated and I lost the battle
but now I know that life doesn't always go my way
Now I learned I can never be too exceptional
When I'm wasting my time saying how smart how I'am
someone else's wasting their time hitting the books preparing to
beat me
Today I learned that I'am as smart as my last race
