A Different Take On Intelligence

by victortouche

should never be...
a curse.

I never knew,
just...never knew.

A lifetime of rationalization
of what the gut
's been repeatin'.

Should oughta know by now-
ain't your gut always right?

's a shame ya can't
pass it on,
ain't it?

Then again,
what you gonna do-
tell the kids?

'bout laughter
when you beam
with insight

'bout beauty,
the sheer joy
of understanding

a light one shares


This is truth. "They all like me, but no one understands me." Einstein
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
