Poems and Poetry: Her Eyes Radiates With Wisdom

Updated on March 14, 2016

Wise Beyond Her Age

Her eyes radiated with

Wisdom beyond her age

Wisdom forced upon her

By hard times

She is older in mind

Hard and cruel times dragged

Her out of childhood

Neighbor’s eyes were filled

Sympathy and surprise

They never imagined that

Someone as famous and successful

As she was would have had such

Painful childhood

Today she is at the top of the world

Smiling down at the envious and the

Adoring.

      He was humbled though. But in most cases people often forget how they suffered before success smiled at them and after climbing they push down the ladder they used to climb.

      I hope the difficult times made him humble to the ones that suffer while he is now at the top. Well written.

      Hi Tony......all I can say is that I'm sorry that he had a difficult childhood, but "good for HIM!" I like to see the little guy or the underdog win. Thanks for this little triumph!
