Their Brilliance

Updated on June 29, 2017


Those who have gone before us, the gifted in every best way

Brilliant thoughts from intelligence beyond compare displayed

Leonardo, Einstein, Tesla and many others, all gifted brothers

Used more of their brains than any might consider of all others


These most phenomenal and outstanding forebearers to show

Just how superb and extraordinary such a mentality may grow

Over the ages the lives of these sages to influence all for better

The same presentation of cognitive ability fine writers to a letter


Hemingway, Twain, Woolf, and Rowling, all authors of the best

Their finest writings all proof as their own quality does so attest

Magnificent composers, Brahms, Beethoven and Mozart's gifts

Such wonderful contributions, help to give our lives fondest lifts


Everyone's own generous capabilities are there to be expressed

As golden nuggets to be sought, revealed in one another's quest

There's a genius to wait within ourselves, just to give it a chance

Showing brightly as a star in the universe's own incessant dance




What separates us from others, of their own brilliant intelligence

Like a wheel needs a chance to roll, in its own unique relevance

Exercise is so vital, manipulating our parts, of their maintenance

The same in reference to our minds, finding wealth in abundance


When we seek, we all shall find, this to be an assured quotation

For each one bright thought, a new one awaits, not a postulation

Diamonds we may find within our minds, to cut and polish so well

As a brilliant light switched on to shine, a rope pulled to ring a bell

      I have already seen 2 Bears, 1 Clown, 1 Haunted Moon, a Ferris Wheel, a Culinary Chef, a Chicken, SpongeBob (without his legs), a Science Museum, 2 Bowling Alleys, a Box of Chocolates, an Elf, and 4 Birds...just no face. I am just lacking the ability to distinguish Facial Features.

      I don't see a face, unless it's subliminal...but, I do see a fantastic poem! I enjoy your writings, as I do this poem. (I see my face in my profile pic, and that of the other commenters).
