poetry varieties of smart

preparation begets awareness

focus begets intelligence

constraint begets cleverness

practice begets command

time begets wisdom

infatuation begets brilliance

poetry : at least I got to love you

When they lay me down, put my soul to rest
When they ask me how I spent my life
At least I got to love you, when it's all over
When it's all said and done, when it's all over
At least I got to love you, at least I got to love you

lyric from Alicia Keys 'When it's all over'

poetry: can't you be believing now?

I can't do well when I think
you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
are you gonna leave me now?
can't you be believing now?
